Pontedeva - Ourense

Coordinates:

Description

This trail showcases the exuberant nature surrounding the Deva river and leads to beautiful views over the Miño river. As it is a circular route, you can start at various points, such as the O Valiño or A Ponte Ballote motorhome area. The latter location is recommended as it also links to route PR-G 176.

From A Ponte Ballote, the route descends along the Deva river to reach A Ponte do Cantiño and continues to A Ponte Trado, an interesting mediaeval construction with probable Roman origins. Next, you will ascend up to Trado. A little further up, you will find the O Valiño motorhome area.

The route continues towards Monte de San Xusto. During the ascent, visit the viewpoint over the Miño river and the modest, renovated hermitage of San Xusto, which has tables and benches around it. The path then descends to the village of Trado Pequeno and continues until you reach A Ponte Ballote.

Access

From the OU-410 road from Cortegada to Ponte Barxas, take the road towards A Ponte do Cantiño at the crossroads next to the bridge over the Deva. Following the old road to Pontedeva, you will reach A Ponte Ballote.
