Description

The Guitiriz water route is a level route that, by the banks of the rivers Parga and Ladroil, travels along the green trail that goes from the Santo Alberte bridge to the Pardiñas oak grove.

The sites, the history and the buildings make it a highly recommendable route: the bridge of Santo Alberte, on the northern Way of St. James, the bridges of Pitero, Parga, Ferreira, Montemeá or Moeiro; a large number of mills, such as the restored ones of Parga and Ferreira; the leisure areas such that of Os Sete Muíños; the ancient Roman villa of Caranicum, the Parga Castle and Fair, the churches, chapels and the unusual Guitiriz mosque… But above all, this route connects the three most important medicinal springs: Valdobín, with its peaceful leisure area; San Xoán de Lagostelle, in the impressive Guitiriz Spa Hotel; and the quiet spring of Santo Domingo next to the Pardiñas oak grove.

Access

From A Coruña or Lugo along the A-6 exiting in Guitiriz, continuing along the N-VI to the starting points.

O BALNEARIO DE GUITIRIZ

The Guitiriz Spa Hotel, opened at the beginning of the 19th century, was an important motor for the town’s economy.

During the Civil War it operated as a hospital for the “Moorish” troops, and a mosque was built near the hotel. Later, following the splendour of the 1950s, with the trend of sunbathing at the beach, spa hotels entered a period of decadence.
