Description

This trail follows the Umia River, running from near the manor house known as Pazo de Barrantes to the historic bridge at Ponte Arnelas. The completely flat route will allow you to enjoy a pleasant walk.

The path runs along the fertile basin of the Umia River, crossing the river several times: at Cabanelas Bridge, Santa Marta Bridge and finally, Ponte Arnelas. The walk will take you through vineyards of the Rías Baixas Designation of Origin, with the grapevines providing lovely views. The gentle, established trail offers several places to rest and contemplate the pools along the river.

Ponte Arnelas marks the end of the route. An inscription tells us that the bridge for which it was named was rebuilt in 1598 by Philip II, due to the importance of this location as a communication route for transporting goods from the coast to inland areas.

Access
