Description

This route is notable thanks to its spectacular views over the Miño river, as well as for the architectural wealth of the Toén town hall.

Starting in Moreiras, the route initially travels through the urban centre, which has well-preserved, well-built buildings, such as its square and fountain from 1895, the Casa del Patín or the baroque façade of the church of San Pedro.

This long route mainly runs along wide tracks, except for the old paths between villages and the winding paths found in the Coto Louredo forest. Along this path, areas of scrubland will alternate with dense forests that contain cork oaks, chestnuts, strawberry trees, oaks and holly trees.

In Coto Louredo, you can enjoy the views over the Miño river valley from the natural viewpoint and the Cima da Granxa cave or from Penedo Fendido. In Mugares, the route passes the hermitage of Las Angustias, as well as the church of Santa María and its blazoned rectory.

The route also visits the towns of Toén, Trellerma and Trelle with old houses and religious buildings worth visiting. There are two well-indicated deviations that allow you to shorten your walk.
