Welcome to Parada de Sil & Around
The village of Parada de Sil sits on the plateau high above the Cañón do Sil, 22km east of Luintra. From the village, separate roads lead 1km to the spectacular Balcóns de Madrid viewpoint over the canyon and 4km down to the lovely Mosteiro de Santa Cristina de Ribas de Sil. Part of the PRG98 walking trail heads down to the monastery and back up to the viewpoint in a loop of about 10km from the village.
Another great walking trail in the area, combining a beautiful wooded river canyon and several upland villages, is the Ruta Cañón do Río Mao.
