The Walk

From parque de Galeras to Sarela de Abaixo
From bridge to bridge over the Sarela River

This walk, almost three kilometres long, is part of a longer path that circles the urban area of Compostela, linking several green spaces in the city. We start in the surroundings of the Campo de Santa Isabel, at the foot monte Pío, crossing the parque de Galeras and following the winding course of the Sarela River, a tributary of the Sar. We arrive at Carme de Abaixo, with its baroque chapel and a 16th century bridge that forms a beautiful corner next to the river.

From here we leave behind the more urban area to enter the riverside woods and fields of this rural area of the capital. We will cross the river at A Ponte Sarela, where we will be able to see pilgrims on their way to Fisterra. We will then walk along the centenary walls of the pazo (manoir house) of San Lourenzo de Trasouto Further on, we will come across a wooden footbridge that runs alongside the river, ending our walk on rúa Bidueiro, in the area of Sarela de Abaixo.
