Breakfast in the Salón de Andrade, in the Parador de Vilalba. We set out ready to begin our adventure, forever marked by the flow of water.
Our first stop is in the Pedregal de Irimia, where the river Miño has its source, an ideal place for exploring the surroundings and its rocks, in only 5 km we arrive at Fonmiñá, where the river Miño stagnates creating a lagoon, shrouded by myths and legends at an altitude of 600 metres.
For food... Lugo, after walking along its wall we enjoy its gastronomy while we soak up its Roman past.
We arrive at the village of Belesar in the Ribeira Sacra, where we find a different landscape, dominated by "socalcos" (terraced lands) where we enter wine culture by visiting local cellars.
We arrive at the village of Monforte, we are in the Ribeira Sacra capital, where we will stay in its Parador. The railway museum will delight children and lovers of this mode of transport.
In the morning we continue our journey from the Mirador de O Cabo do Mundo to Cova Beach, ideal for enjoying the water in this warm area during the summer months.
7 km downstream, between the towns of Marce and Guítara, the hiking route of Augacaída and Castro de Marce begins, with a spectacular waterfall that you won't want to miss. After the walk, we head towards Os Peares to see how the Sil joins its waters with the Miño.
Ourense is ideal for eating the typical octopus or cooked pig ear accompanied by wines from the Ribeiro D.O. and for relaxing in its thermal baths on the Miño.
At dusk we arrive at Ribadavia, the regional capital of O Ribeiro and famous for its Jewish quarter. Our next stop is 30 km away in Arbo, where the queen of the table is the lamprey, which has its own interpretation centre.
We will spend the night in O Baixo Miño, in the Parador de Tui, which faithfully reproduces a beautiful traditional Galician pazo (house).
In the morning we will visit Tui, located in the foothills of the Monte Aloia Natural Park. Crossing the International Bridge we reach Valença do Miño (Portugal) with its fortress, full of history and a lot of trade.
Our last stop will be at the mouth of the Miño River in A Guarda, but if we prefer heights, the compulsory end will be the Monte Santa Trega.
