Description

From A Ponte das Poldras in Leiro this route crosses the urban nucleus of the municipality’s capital. The path ascends to Lebosende via the so-called Camino Real, a route it shares with PR-G 76.

Higher up, in Paredes, the route leads you to the “Regato do Foxo” ethnographic area made up of 6 mills and 30 granaries. By taking a turn from this village indicated by an arrow next to a cross, you may leave the signposted route and approach a paved track to the church of San Tomé de Serantes (12th century), one of the most beautiful examples of Romanesque architecture in Galicia.

The path leaves Paredes through a paved section towards Orega. Next, turn right and enter a unique landscape of native vegetation. On this route, the path goes to Valboa and later reaches the Pena Corneira recreational area, crowned with the spectacular granite “horns” (cornos) that give this area its name. This is also where the Romanesque church of Lamas is located.

The route also connects to two branches that lead to the summit of Pena Corneira and the Outeiral viewpoint, both located at over 600 metres above sea level with excellent views over the region.
