R3 - Conexión Riós-Barxa

A challenging route for experienced cyclists, very hilly and with technical areas, through the Marcelín river valley reaching the village of Barxa.

From Riós, this connection crosses the Marcelín River Valley as far as the village of Santa Baia, then continues on to San Paio, where a short climb up to Castrelo de Abaixo begins. This border area where the Rivers Mente and Arzoá come together, near the Montesinho Nature Park (Portugal) and the heart of Trambolosríos is rich in Mediterranean-influenced ecology and has species that are unique to Galicia. The road begins to descend in Castrelo de Abaixo until it reaches A Veiga do Seixo, where you’ll pedal alongside the border. After crossing the River Mente in A Ponte de Veiga, a fairly technical climb begins that will reward the rider with a quick descent to As Forcadas and the natural watchtower of Curva do Cepillo. From this point, you can enjoy a spectacular view of the border with Portugal, Pena Maseira and – in the background – Barxa, the final destination of this route. The Chapel of San Xoán and the “Muíños de Cachón” are must-sees in Barxa.
