On leaving the church of Caritel, where we can see the Stone Cross of Coto, we come to an ancient cobbled path in the shade, known as the Fraga de Abaixo (Lower Forest), which comes to an end at the River Verdugo. To cross the river and continue the route, walkers have to summon all their skills and get over the so-called “Fraga stepping stones” and “Portasouto stepping stones” over Costiñas brook and the River Verdugo respectively. After crossing the “Coveliña stepping stones” and the village of Laxoso de Abaixo, we head for Laxoso de Arriba until we come to the stone crosses of Pé das Herbas and Camiño do Roriz.
The route continues towards the village of Porcinas until we come to a forest trail between walls that leads us to the Foxo do Lobo. At this point we can choose between leaving the original trail and visiting this unique building from where wolves were once hunted to death.
We then cross the road from Ponte Caldelas to Aguasantas and go down a pathway between stone walls, which takes us to the brook of Coveliña. We can then find the way back to the church in Caritel.
