Description



Traditional architecture / Ethnography / Landscape interest


This short route allows visitors to enjoy an attractive walk along the well-known mills of O Picón and O Folón, heritage that today is considered of Cultural Interest.

These constructions, located within the municipality that has a beautiful and fragrant name, are built on slopes that also serve as extraordinary viewpoints over the valley of O Rosal. The mills stand out as imposing marvels of traditional engineering, and also because of their seemingly precarious balance on the slopes where they are located. Also, their well cared for surroundings.

In their search for the ancient sounds of the millstones and water wheels, from the heights, walkers can enjoy uniquely beautiful and magnificent views of the Santa Tegra mountain and the Miño river.

Access

Along PO-552 from Tui to A Guarda, take PO-354 to O Rosal. From O Rosal you reach A Ponte das Penas following the numerous indications towards the mills of O Folón.

A plus

The exceptional quality of the wine and the profuse growth of flowers and ornamental plants in this area are the result of its special microclimate.
Thus, Rías Baixas are northern Spain’s coastal area with the largest amount of daylight hours, with warm but not suffocating summers, with scarce summer rains and slight temperature differences between day and night. But Galicia does not have just one climate.
Because of its geographical location, amongst Atlantic, continental, subtropical and polar influences, and due to its quite complex orography, there are several microclimates in all four provinces.
