In the Rías Altas of Betanzos and Ares, the rivers Mandeo and Eume meet the sea. These riverbank woods, leafy and full of life, accompany both rivers on their journey, leaving behind them beautiful landscapes, pools, waterfalls, bridges, mills, fishermen’s huts…
The Parque Natural das Fragas do Eume boasts an infinity of routes that allow us to get to know all of its nooks and crannies, dodging the river under the oak, chestnut and alder trees, which live alongside the giant ferns of the Tertiary Period. This time we propose that you start discovering the woodland here on the Senda dos Cerqueiros (Monfero), a path that will take you deep into the last Atlantic woods.
Walking down the River Mandeo, you’re very likely to see some trout, as well as a succession of alder, willow, birch and hazel groves. As in the case of the Fragas do Eume there are various walking route here, we propose starting with one in particular: the route along the River Cambás, a tributary of the River Mandeo. On this route you can find pools and waterfalls, and explore the beautiful Fraga das Barbudas (Aranga).
You wouldn’t want to miss out on the chance to get to know these two woods! Come on! They’re close by, and well worth a visit!
