Location

Parada de Sil - Ourense

Coordinates:
42º 22' 57.2" N - 7º 34' 06.6" W

Description

This interesting route runs along cart trails and footpaths, in Parada de Sil, municipality of Ourense, along well cared for grapevines, century old chestnut groves, ancient oak forests and by the magnificent Sil Canyon and its beautiful viewpoints.

The ovens, wood drying areas and mills show the humanization of the still wild nature that preserves, like a small treasure, one of the historical marvels of this canyon: the unique Romanesque monastery of Santa Cristina de Ribas de Sil.

The central location of the variant PR-G 98.1, between Parada de Sil and Fondo de Vila, enables us to cut the route short by half its length.Thus, a walk between the Praza do Barquilleiro, in the capital of the municipality, and the village of Fondodevila, is a shorter version of this pleasant route.

Most importantly, while we enjoy these lands above the Sil river, we must not miss the opportunity of tasting the gastronomy and the good wines of this peaceful region.
