Serra do Xurés MTB Centre

R2 - Ruta Travesía do Xurés

The route starts from the former San Pedro Rectory in Muíños, which has been converted today into Rural Tourism accommodation. Going up, it leads us to the village of O Agrelo, which we will cross in order to reach Picós, through an area of well-preserved autochthonous forest. Follow the signposts on the PR-G Torrente-Salgueiro footpath, belonging to the network of Park routes, until reaching the hermitage of A Clamadoira, from where you can contemplate the beautiful panoramic view of the river Limia valley. Magnificent centenary oak trees surround the little 18th century church. The next compulsory stop is the village of Prado de Limia, where we can enjoy the typical popular architecture of O Xurés, including its renovated communal oven, as well as of the church of San Salvador.
We cross the river Salas over a stone bridge leading to a recreational area with several mills, some are still working. We go down a track that is in good condition towards Albite, a small cattle village. After a very technical rise and descent, we come to the parish of A Cela, where its houses and stables fuse with the huge granite bolos that make singular architecture. Downstream from A Cela, there is the spectacular A Poza da Seima waterfall. Cross the river Salas via the wooden bridge and start fastidiously carrying your bicycle for approximately 15 minutes until reaching the dirt track that goes towards Reparade, where we join the “Vía Nova” Route 6, coming from Lobios.
Leaving Reparade, again the footpath leads us upwards towards the hermitage of A Clamadoira. The return journey towards the San Pedro Rectory is across a narrow path that ends at the Mugueimes road, just a few metres away from the end of this trail.
