mailto:?subject=Content from Tourism of Galicia: PR-G 172 RUTA DO RÍO CHANCA&body=I recommend you read the information PR-G 172 RUTA DO RÍO CHANCA extracted from the Tourism of Galicia site on page https://www.turismo.gal/recurso/-/detalle/170515000170/pr-g-172-ruta-do-rio-chanca?langId=en_US%26ctre=23%26tp=6
This new trail runs along the western part of the O Salnés district. It climbs from sea level along a gentle, pleasant path, following the course of the Chanca River to A Armenteira Convent.
Along the way you will pass more than 20 mills, some of them completely restored. Inside, you can see how the grain was milled. The mill at O Pontilllón is a unique example. Its cylindrical millpond (the area where the water enters) was constructed using stacked stone rings, a demonstration of the skill of those long-ago “canteiros” (stonemasons).
The first half of the trail is gentle, running through vineyards which extend along both sides of the river in some sections. As you climb, you will enter a wooded area of deciduous trees along the river.
At the end of the route, a fourmetre stone wall will indicate that you have reached the grounds of A Armenteira Monastery. Walk around the convent to the centre of the village.
Lugar de Galiñáns (Meaño), on the PO-9205, next to the bridge across the Chanca River.
