    Castaño de Ramil

    March 5, 2019, This massive chestnut tree of 800+ years sits on the eastern section of Triacastela as you first begin entering town. I've passed it twice after walking down from O Cebreiro in winter and each time have stopped for a look. Perhaps some day I'll see it with leaves.
