Description

On the river Tea, the variety of river landscapes to be seen in scarcely fifty kilometres makes it an ecological landmark in the region of O Condado. It has large forests along its banks from its beginning in the Alto de Moncelos, between the mountain ranges of O Suído and Faro de Avión, until it flows into the Miño.
Easy access to the river is provided by the river beaches and recreation areas at many points along its course. Some of these are extremely beautiful, such as the Dos Pasos Ford of Tatín or the Cernadela bridge, of Roman origin, and very impressive with its five irregular arches. Another highlight of the river Tea is its route through Mondariz-Balneario. This is the smallest municipality in Galicia, but it is home to the formidable historic buildings of the famous spa.
