The Monte Pedroso is a 461  m high of granite mountain in the northern Spanish city of Santiago de Compostela in the parish of Santa Maria Figueiras.

It is only 3 km from the center of the capital of the Autonomous Community of Galicia . It can be reached through orchards and the Calzada del Carmen, a half-hour walk from the cathedral . The mountain is on the right side of the Sarela River , over which a preserved medieval bridge runs. From its summit (461 m) there is a good view of Santiago de Compostela and other mountains such as Fontecova . At the top there are antennas and converters for radio and television. The conifer forest with chestnuts, eucalyptus and oaks was badly damaged by a fire in the summer of 2006. Another major forest fire occurred in June 2011.

In the vicinity of the summit, chalk-marked spiral petroglyphs attest to the presence of man since the Stone and Bronze Ages.
