Description

Landscape interest

At the start of this route we come across a lagoon in the former quarry of A Lapa. From here head upwards past the old quarry and after passing a water tank, we follow a path bordered by tall pine trees, and come to Alto da Lapa.
We continue to go upwards, leaving behind the chapel of San Amaro in Cacheiro, reaching the highest point of the route, which is easily identifiable by the rock formation shaped like a cave, known as Pedra Miranda. At the end of the route is a natural viewpoint from where you can admire the bays of San Simón and Rande.
