Description

The River Xabriña, a tributary of the Tea, is the real star of this circular route that starts in the parish of Paraños and visits places like Prado de Canda and A Lamosa.
In addition to the exquisite vegetation on its banks, along the way you can enjoy extraordinary ethnographic and cultural wealth. Along the entire route we come across well-preserved elements of great value, such as the parish church of Paraños, various old chandleries like the “Lagar da Cera” in Portocortiñas, almost thirty mills along the river, traditional pathways, fountains, culverts and bridges such as Ponte Folón.
The circular design is divided into two large rings.
The first runs by the river from Paraños through dense woods to Ponte Folón. The second ring goes through Prado and A Lamosa and takes us to the Cotos da Bouza viewpoint and several small villages where we can discover the ancient activity of craftsmen working with wax.
In addition, at several points along the way we can enjoy panels with verses by Galician poet Uxío Novoneyra, from his book entitled “Os Eidos”.
