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

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.
The main route measures 7.9 km
and the diversion 7 km
