Abstract

ln the north-west of Portugal, the quaternary glaciation hadn't only reached the mountains of Gerês and Peneda. Also in Cabreira mountain, southward and with low altitude, forms and deposits with origin in the quaternary cold are remarked, even than in a smaller number and of a smaller dimension. This article tries to point out the sheltered character of the glaciation in the culminant massif of Cabreira mountain, as well as to distinguish the two kinds of landscapes present there, derived from an intense gelifraction (slopes with cryoclastic debris) and from glacial morphogenesis.
