This beautiful route runs along the right bank of the River Ulla, heading downhill, taking advantage of tracks, fishermen's paths and already marked ways.
From San Xoán da Cova, to the base of the impressive ravine, artfully crossed by the railway viaduct, the path quickly comes to A Ponte Ulla with interesting constructions to be found within its small urban area.
Further ahead, it is well worth turning off to see the Ortigueira Manor in Santa Cruz, founded in the 16th century by the Mondragón family and one of the most interesting in the area around Santiago de Compostela. This Baroque pazo (mansion) is remarkable for its extensive gardens and ancient trees that decorate the property, where the great politician Jovellanos drafted his Memorial in defence of the Central Government.
In the parish of San Miguel de Sarandón, we come to a recreational area and center of fish-farming studies, as well as a beautiful pazo (mansion), all in the town of Ximonde.
Leaving the Cubelas recreation area and the mills of Pastel behind, the route ends next to the River Ulla.
