Description

Ethnography
The route starts on the old forest path, via a very well-preserved track through farmland and woods. There are four traditional mills along the route, completely restored, with panels providing information about their heritage and ethnographical value.
In the area known as O Telleiro there is a diversion leading to Ribeira Mill.
After coming back to the main route and passing the diversion to Queiroa de Abaixo, we take a second diversion to visit Queiroa Mill, once fed by the River Traveso.
Near Soutelo, a third diversion goes to the Fulling Mill, lying on a water course crowned by Olas hill fort.
The last restored mill we can visit is Covela Mill, down the fourth diversion on the route. From here we head for the villages of A Carballa and Leborís.
Towards the end of the route, in the recreational area of Ponte Carballa by the River Samo, lie the ruins of the Large Mill of Baltares.
