Serra do Xurés MTB Centre

R3 - Ruta Megalítica

This pleasant bicycle ride starts from the Reception Point located at the Aviva Mountain Centre, in the nucleus of As Maus de Salas. It lets us go back to the Bronze Age with a clear playful - interpretive character of the archaeological patrimony to be found around this Nature Reserve.
During our itinerary, we will share some sections of the “Picos de Fontefría” Route 4 and the “Serra do Pisco” Route 5.
Before crossing the dam of the Salas reservoir, we fi nd the Casiña da Moura and, just after crossing it, the Casola do Foxo, located in a small natural viewing-point that coincides with the existing link with Route 4. The two most important dolmens of A Baixa Limia are here, dating back to the Third Millennium B.C. and displaced from their original siting due to building the reservoir.
After pedalling along a track that borders the reservoir, where you can see several very singular rocky formations, we reach the bridge that joins Guntumil to As Maus de Salas. At this point of the trail, you can choose to connect to Route 5 that goes to the O Pisco refuge or cross the bridge to continue on our archaeological itinerary and visit other examples of the height of megalithism in this territory: the necropolis of Outeiro de Cavaladre, formed by two mámoas (megalithic tombs) where the remains of arrow tips and ceramic containers were found.
We go back to the Reception Point, wandering along the narrow streets of As Maus de Salas, where we can still fi nd remains of the chapel of Santa Baia.
