The 125 km long river crosses the central regions of Galicia, in its intermediate basin, and before it passes through the municipality of Santiago de Compostela, it breaks into a network of small rivers.
The forests give life to some beautiful riverside landscapes. One way to approach them is from the riverside recreation areas. For example, in the municipality of Oroso, starting from Sigüeiro, the island of the Refugio (hut); Penateixa; Arderiz bridge in its confluence with the Samo river; and Cachopal, with the river Maruzo. The charming centre of Ponte Maceira, on the Fisterra-Muxía road is one of the best points from which to enjoy the river.


The N-550 road on the stretch between Ordes and Santiago de Compostela, where there are numerous turnoffs to the basin of the Tambre.
