At the foot of the Monterreal Castle
Count of Gondomar’s Courtyard
This walk starts at praia da Cuncheira and borders the castle of Monterreal or monte Boi , built between the 12th and 16th centuries and now converted into a National Parador. This fortress still maintains three watchtowers: the Clock Tower, which served to sound the alarm in case of enemy attack; the Pincer Tower, whose task was to defend the port with firing batteries; and the Prince’s Tower, which served as a lighthouse for the ships.
A few metres from the beginning of our route we find an old lobster farm that worked until the 70s of the twentieth century and today has been converted into an outdoor Thalasso.
It is a short and easy walk, which allows us to do it while enjoying the privileged views of the Atlantic Ocean and the llas Cíes, which are part of the Parque Nacional Marítimo Terrestre das Illas Atlánticas.
