Despite the beautiful beaches, there is a whole forest filled with strange trees near the famous Sao Pedro de Moel. When I want to run away from the city, I usually go to the coast near the ocean, especially during the winter when everything is calmer, sometimes I’ll take a walk on the beach, other times, I just relax near the magnificent trees.
Throughout the coastline you can find some trees with strange shapes which we call “snake trees” or “crawling trees”.
These snake trees are near the sea, without any protection and constantly buffered by the harsh sea winds, which did not allow them to grow vertically.
Some of these trees can have an overall height of 10 meters and a diameter of 16.40 meters from the crown, some of them have a probable age of about 130/170 years. You can admire these magnificent trees all along the coastline .
