Sil Canyon Road

Sil Canyon Road is a loop drive located in the Province of Ourense, in the heart of the region of Galicia in northern Spain. The road runs along the Sil River and Santo Estevo dam.

The surface of the road is asphalt. It’s 110 km long. Its many twists, turns and narrows can pose a challenge to even the most experienced drivers. The road is not easy, though. Up, down, right, left all the time. The canyon is also called La Ribeira Sacra. It is one of the largest rivers in Spain regarding water flow.

The journey offers an exhilarating driving experience, with superb views. An incredible journey, an unforgettable experience. The scenery is considered to be the most spectacular in Galicia.  This is definitely one road trip that you want to record with lots of photographs. This deep gorge, formed of rocks, water and winding bends, is sure to make an impression on anyone who sees it. There are lots of viewpoints, official and unofficial. You can enjoy fantastic panoramic views of the Canyon and discover some of the monasteries mysteriously hidden away amongst the vegetation.
