Arquitectura tradicional / Etnografía / Interese paisaxístico
The route starts at the Alto do Confurco, located in the parish of Cans. At the beginning there are several
wooden stairways and boardwalks to help us over some very uneven land, while passing by the stream of
Couso that once fed the seven Mills of Laxe.
From this point, the route winds through vineyards, meadows, cornfields, fountains and villages; an
enjoyable and beautiful mosaic that shows what life is and above all was like in rural Galicia.
Once on the Alto de San Cibrán we come down parallel to the river Caselas towards
the bottom of the valley, where most of the houses and buildings of interest are
located, like public washing places,
windmills and the Peto de ánimas
de O Carballal.
The last stretch of the trail runs
through San Xurxo community
mountains until the end of our
journey in the recreation area of As
Conforcadas. At this point we can
choose between joining GR-58, the
As Greas route, and returning to
the Alto de Cans.
