In the parish of Burgueira (Oia), in the O Baixo Miño region, we find this small circular route of just over one kilometre that runs along the banks of the Tamuxe River, also known as the Carballas River.
The walk starts from the recreational zone, surrounded by pine trees with benches and a picnic area, from where we can see a wooden bridge that crosses the river. During our tour we will find two restored flour mills, next to which we can see the remains of the millstones that were used to grind the grain. We can also observe how the river descends forming rapids and small waterfalls that give rise to natural pools that are deep enough to take a dip in on hot days.
A little after the waterfall is the encoro de Vilachán, built in 1993 and located 150 m upstream. Passing the Tamuxe on our right, we descend along a forest trail to get back to the starting point.
