Description

This is the northernmost recognized trail in Galicia. It offers hikers the opportunity to admire the beauty of the Lugo coast from the Ria of
Barqueiro and Cape Estaca de Bares to San Román Beach.

The route begins at the port in the town of O Vicedo and runs along the coast, passing amazing beaches and cliffs hundreds of metres high, to San Román Beach, where you can take a break and watch the birds that shelter in this magnificent spot. But the high point of the route is Illa Coelleira Viewpoint and the amazing view of the small island that was once home to a Templar monastery.

The route is oneway, running along well-maintained paths and forest tracks also suitable for cycling and horse riding. It crosses dizzying cliffs in a number of places. There are few gradients and several rest areas, making it suitable for any hiker.
