General interest
This route goes past all the mills existing between the villages of O Grandón and Furís de Abaixo. It is a privileged environment made up of small rural villages, forest pathways and trails, a broad ethnographic heritage with architectural examples of stone houses that have stood the test of time.
From the beginning, after visiting Lamela Mill in Rodinso, one of the few waterwheel mills in Galicia, the route leads us to the Serra da Vaqueriza. Before reaching this place, taking a diversion with a steep slope, you can visit the village of Vilabade and admire the Manor House of the same name.
Back on the main route, near the Alto da Vaqueriza, we share a stretch of the Primitive Pilgrim’s road to Santiago de Compostela, which starts in Oviedo.
From this point, we keep walking among small peaks and valleys, visiting the villages of Masoucos, Vilacote and Riomol. At the end of this latter village there is a diversion to Cabaleiros Mill.
Once back on the main route, in Mirandela we follow a stretch of the Roman Road running beside the village mill.
Following the river upstream we come to the end of the route in Furís de Abaixo, where Portela and Cabanela Mills are located.


On the A6 at the city of Lugo, take exit 493 and join the LU-530 towards A Fonsagrada. In Castroverde take the LU-1212 until you come to Rodinso and find Lamela Mill. About 250 m west from this point lies the sign indicating the beginning of the route.
