The river Cabe
The source of the river Cabe is in the nearby mountain of Loureira which is around 900 metres high. By the time it reaches the centre of Monforte the Cabe has become a calm and slow moving river whose banks are ideal for walks or sport.
There is a festival dedicated to the river "A festa do Rio" which is held on the last Saturday in July. Food and drink stalls, fishing demonstrations, games for children, music and other activities are concentrated along the river side from the Parque de los Condes to El Malecon.

Fishing in the River

For most of the urban sectors of the river and in particular all the central Monforte section it is "catch and release fishing". The signs indicating this read “pesca sin muerte”, litterally fishing without death
As well as gentle walks along side the river within the city limits it is possible to make a longer walk following the river through the local countryside. This circular route is classified as easy and is around 15kms in total.
