R1 - Ruta das Carballeiras

Circular route around The Castaña Interpretation Centre, the old rectory in Trasestrada.

The route starts at the A Castaña Interpretation Centre in A Eirexa (Trasestrada), an old rectory which has been renovated and is now a Mountain Bike Centre information point. It also houses a complete exhibition on the chestnut, the star of the local cuisine, of the economic activity of the municipality and of the landscape along this trail. At the very beginning of the itinerary is the parish Church of Santo Estevo. From here on, the route alternates stretches of country road and forest tracks that head towards San Cristovo and then continue on to Riós over a path between fields and chestnut forests. Once in Riós – the municipal capital – you can visit the parish Church of Santa María, built in the Baroque style. From the Riós town centre, and sharing a common stretch of Route 2, “Ruta de Valmedo ”, this route continues North on a dirt road that goes to As Vendas da Barreira, where you can stop along the way to take a look at the Chapel of San Mauro and the baptismal font located on the outside of the building. Once you’ve left behind this hamlet, the route travels for a few kilometres over the Southeastern Way of St James (the “Silver Route”) until it splits off at the location known as “As Mallas”, then continues to Domiz and finally returns to the route’s starting point.
