Description

Natural interest

This pathway starts from the place known as O Conchido, where a military battery is located. It winds along the coast through one of the best preserved areas in the peninsula of O Grove, coming to an end near the tourist resort of San Vicente do Grove.

Along cart trails and pathways, crossing little-used wild beaches, we never lose sight of the sea. The whole route stands out thanks to the presence of monumental granite rocks that have been molded into different forms by the powerful wind erosion.

Along the route we can see a number of small beaches such as Con Negro, A Poza, Barreiro and Castiñeira.

Nearing the end of the route, we come to Castiñeira public washing place, built by residents in the mid-twentieth century to take advantage of the fresh water there.

Access

Take exit 119 from the AP-9 to O Grove, along the AG-41. Continue towards VRG-4.1 and follow the signs to San Vicente do Grove. Go through the village and stay on the PO-9106 to the military training area known as A Batería.
