Description

The route around Cambre offers visitors the possibility of seeing and experiencing these lands which are so near the city of A Coruña, and nevertheless offer peaceful and privileged natural sites and dark fragas (woods).
The trail begins in the town of Cambre, next to the Cambre Archaeological Museum and very close to the monastery of Santa María de Cambre, a national monument and amazing jewel of Romanesque architecture. The route passes by the ancient Celtic fortifications of Cambre and Armental, along deep and narrow paths and along the mysterious Pena de Nosa Señora (Our Lady’s Rock), which is full of inscriptions and engravings of unknown meaning. After a beautiful walk and nearing the centre of Cambre, we can enjoy the views of the town and especially of the old and unusual colonial houses.
