Thanks to Christian Rodriguez for adding this peak.
Peña Trevinca (2127m) is the highest mountain of the provinces of Zamora and Orense / Ourense in the northwest of Spain and the highest of the region of Galicia. It is found in the nature reserve of Sanabria, near the great lake of Sanabria, and it has long routes from the province of León by the north, from Zamora by the south and from Ourense by the west.
Itself does not it treat only of the highest mountain of a zone but I believe that it has a lot of interest to visit the zone of the nature reserve where is found that to reach only the top. Due to that any route that is undertaken supposes more than 20km is a mountain destined to mountaineers or hikers trained, although the slope does not surpass the 1000m.
Name: probably came from the word Trifinca (Three demarcations) or from the confluence of three rivers (Xares, Tera and Cabrera). Some persons says a possible derivation of the flower Pervinca.
Range: the great range is called Macizo Galaico-Leonés where's the little Sierra de Trevinca or Segundera. For the moment it's the only peak of this massif and the range don't has a page.
