Ruta 3 - Chandrexa de Queixa
If, on the contrary, you walk to the municipality of Chandrexa de Queixa through Celeiros, the municipal head town with an ethnographical museum, there is a road that runs around the dam from which several turn-offs start, as well as a nice walk to the recreational area of Santa Cruz along the banks of the river Queixa. From here, you can also reach the "Bidueiral de Montederramo" SCI and have a look at the woody stronghold dominated by perfectly-preserved birches. However, if you want to climb the Serra de San Mamede, we recommend starting onthe other side. From the village of Arnuíde, on the road from Maceda to Xinzo de Limia, a track which starts there will lead you to the hill where blueberry bushes grow. On the other end, on the lands of O Bolo, the typical photo of the Bibei river mountain pass should include the baroque sanctuary of As Ermidas, which hangs from the mountain among slopes filled with vineyards. The mild climate even allowed the monks to have a mill for making olive oil.
