Description

The route follows fishing paths along the Rego de Bounote, which becomes Rego das Reigadas after joining the Rego do Bidueiro stream. The route is located in the Biosphere Reserve created by Unesco in 2007.

From Barreiros, a place of wide meadows, the trail begins a steep descent to the bottom of the valley, where it runs along the Rego do Mazo de Barreiros. The forest that surrounds the area is in a very good state of conservation and contains some centuries-old specimens of oak, chestnut, holly and hazelnut trees.

When you reach the Pozo da Chamosa waterfall, you will end up in the leafy Rego de Bounote. Going downhill, you will go past the Paradela bridge, the Encrucilladas wooden bridge and, a little further on, the As Reigadas mill and waterfall.

Along the route, you will see a multitude of bridges, traditional ouriceiras for storing chestnut husks and mills. The path ends next to the magnificent remains of the Bogo Ironworks.

Access

You can access the route by travelling south from A Pontenova on local roads to Barreiros.

BOGO IRONWORKS

This spectacular smithy, located in the parish of San Pedro de Bogo, uses the hydraulic force of the Reigadas River.

It has recently been partially restored.
