La Fragua

The house has been converted from the original village forge, and has a wonderful view across the valley.

Bubión and Pampaneira

Bubión (1299m.) is a 45 minute walk across the hillside from Capileira, or 25 minutes following the road, whilst Pampaneira (1055m.) is a further 30 minutes down the valley.
