Coordinates:

Description

This is a circular route; you can start at Luíntra, the capital of the municipality of Nogueira de Ramuín, or from Parador and monastery of Santo Estevo de Ribas de Sil. The route mainly follows wide paths and tracks, and intersects the Centro BTT Ribeira Sacra’s Route 1 bicycle route on several occasions.

The landscapes vary between farmed fields and dense oak, chestnut and birch forests. This route offers magnificent views over the Sil River Canyon and an imposing panoramic view over the Santo Estevo monastery offered by the Castro de Litoria, which towers over large granite crags.

The name of the Maquino Largaño route means "long road" and is a tribute to barallete, the guild slang used among certain travelling traders, especially sharpeners and umbrella makers. It was used for cryptic purposes and was very well established in this area.

Access

From Ourense, Luíntra can be accessed via the N-120 and then continuing on the OU-555, or from the OU-536 via the OU-508. The start of the route in Luíntra is located next to the Civil Guard barracks.

A plus

Castro de Litoria

Also known as Penedos do Castro, it represents a curious example of a small citania, a pre-Roman city that was refortified in the Middle Ages. It is believed to originate from the 6th century BC. It was used during the Iron Age and later abandoned, without being Romanised. It was subsequently reoccupied in the Suebi-Visigoth era, with it being occupied until the late Middle Ages (14th-15th centuries). Its functions were to monitor access to Santo Estevo and to serve as a refuge in case of danger.
