Description

One of the four trails in the Rutas do Salnés network, located in the heart of the Rías Baixas region. This is an age-old path that provided access to the mills. It was also used by pilgrims on Easter Monday to reach Santa María da Armenteira Convent.

On this short trail you will visit more than 30 mills, many of them very well made. The route begins in the Municipality of Meis and descends along a narrow path running parallel to the Armenteira River. There are a few difficult spots. This first section has the highest gradient. As a result, you will find more mills, each identified by name. At O Souto Mill, you can also see an unusual water saw. As the route progresses, the slope becomes gentler.

After passing the recreation area, it continues along a comfortable avenue beside the river in the Municipality of Ribadumia. This is a very pleasant trail for a family outing or an excursion on cloudy days when summering in the area.
