R2 - Ruta de Valmedo

A chance to visit the surroundings of the village of Riós sharing several sections of the Way of St. James (the “Silver Route”).

Starting in Riós, this route shares its first section with Route 1, “Ruta das Carballeiras ” as far as the village of As Vendas da Barreira. In this first section, there are about 150 metres of national motorway that you’ll have to travel along, so be careful. Next, you take the turnoff towards Trancoso and As Porqueiras. After cycling through a dense oak forest along the River Mente, take the forest track towards to Virxe dos Remedios Hermitage. Along the way, you’ll be treated to a panoramic view of the A Urdiñeira Mountain Range, an area of great archaeological and natural value. The trail heads towards the location known as “Os Caborcos dos Infernos”, where it begins a rapid descent until it once again reaches the River Mente. After passing under two spectacular viaducts, you’ll reach the hamlet of Atallo do Mente. Once you’ve crossed the river and biked parallel to the motorway, you’ll reach O Navallo, where you can visit the Church of San Vicente. From this point, the route heads towards the areas of Fragoso and O Cabezo, then joins part of the Southeastern Way of St James (the “Silver Route”) and then returns to Riós.
