Description

This circular route starts in the municipal capital of Vilariño de Conso and runs along the eastern side of the mountains of Manzaneda, A Queixa and O Invernadeiro. In this land of mountains, with an average height of 900m, we find varied vegetation consisting of chestnuts, oaks, birches and holly. We also come across cattle pastures and subsistence farming plots near the villages.
An old cart trail starts in Vilariño de Conso towards Conso, becoming a forest track that goes up to San Cristovo, where the Manor House of Conso is located. From here, we begin the descent back down to Conso to visit the church. After leaving the village and heading towards O Palacio, we can take a diversion to visit the Encoro do Vao reservoir by crossing a bridge in A Auga Lavada. Back on the main route, we continue down the path back to Vilariño de Conso.
This route is often snowed over in winter.

O INVERNADEIRO NATURAL PARK

O Invernadeiro Natural Park comprises various mountains in the southern massif of Ourense, in a typical landscape of rounded peaks covered in local plant species. Roe deer, ibex, wolves, wild boars and two pairs of golden eagles share this setting in a geographical location straddling the Mediterranean and Euro-Siberian worlds.
There is also a wildlife observatory and several marked routes in the park. From July to September there are guided visits with biologists from the Nature Preservation Service – a good opportunity to discover one of the best preserved natural areas in Galicia and live a unique experience, isolated in nature.
