The itinerary begins in the municipal capital of A Fonsagrada whose town area is home to the "fons sacrata" ("sacred fountain") whose origin is associated with a miracle of St.James the Apostle, who, after being hospitably attended by a widow, converted the water from this fountain into fresh milk for her children. This town has long pilgrimage tradition, with documents existing that prove the passage of pilgrims from as far back as the end of the 12th century. Leaving A Fonsagrada we can already see San Xoán de Padrón with its 18th century church, arriving shortly after at Montouto, where the ruins of what was perhaps the last of the hospitals on the pilgrim routes of Galicia, it remained open until well into the 20th century, and in the vicinity you can still see a beautiful dolmen. Leaving Montouto, we carry on to Paradavella where there are numerous traditional thatched houses (pallozas) and singular buildings, which reflect how traditional building has evolved in this mountain region. The route then descends to the village of A Degolada to rise once again to reach the A Fontaneira high ground.
Its name comes from the contraction of the Galician words “longa” and “arela”, which could be translated as meaning “deep desire”. It is an old farmhouse, rich and important in its time, referred to in documents dating back to the 17th century. The current architectural configuration, comprising four buildings renovated in a traditional style, dates from the end of the 19th century and is located in an estate of 70.000 m2 of meadowland, populated with local tree species such as oak, chestnut, holly, birch or ash.
