The Walk

From the seafront promenade to praia da Torre

The ría at rest

We start in the town centre following the seafront promenade (Paseo marítimo) of the village, with views of the ría de Arousa. Along the way we find rest areas as well as artistic interventions with tile mosaics about characters from Rianxo as Castelao, Dieste, Manuel Antonio or Brea Segade.

We will also pass through the back of small shipyards arriving at praia do Pazo and next to the ruins of the so-called Castelo da Lúa. It is surrounded by legends and it is said that it belonged to the Order of the Temple, then to the archdiocese of Compostela, and it was already in ruins at the end of the 16th century. It is located at the mouth of the Té River, which we cross by means of a bridge. The route ends at praia da Torre. However, those who want to continue can follow a trail that enters the coastal vegetation and walk a couple of kilometres more to reach punta de Iñobre and the small port of Taragoña.
