Description

The route starts at the entrance to the village of A Ermida, next to the children's area. The rustic chapel of San Xoán is of note in this small rural village.

The route ascends through A Ferrería, the usual route for tourists who want to reach the famous Pozo Bastón. In this section, a large part of the route runs along and repeatedly crosses the Rego do Campo Treito. Just over a kilometre upstream from A Ferrería is the turn to Pozo Bastón, a natural pool with beautiful waterfalls, located just 350 metres from the route.

The ascent reaches Campelo, where the steep climb to Monte da Muralla begins. The route does not go up to the summit, but it is worth taking the detour there to enjoy the views of the Arousa and Muros e Noia estuaries. The route returns to Campelo and the descent ends at A Ermida.

It is highly recommended that you also visit the nearby O Araño granary, which is the longest in Galicia.

Access

Via the AG-11 motorway, access the AC-305 road via exits 10 or 19. Reach the village of Burés, then take the detour to A Ermida and A Ferrería.

A plus

The granary of O Araño
Built between the 16th and 18th centuries, this granary is not very widely known. Other granaries are more famous, but this is the largest granary in Galicia at 37.05 metres long, 2.40 metres wide and 2.70 metres in height. This granary does not rest on beams as its base is formed by a continuous and closed stone structure. Its gabled roof protects its perfectly ventilated interior with rib hollows carved in fine stonework.
