Description

General interest
This circular route starts at Visantoña Social Centre, in the parish of Santiso, and is highly suitable for walking, bicycles and horses. Most of the route runs along pathways in good condition, surrounded by a landscape of meadows marked by the major economic activity in the area - livestock farming.
For almost 15 kilometres we can enjoy the Tajo Mills, the remains of megalithic tombs in O Ribeiro and the Portodemouros reservoir built in the 1960’s for water from the River Ulla and its tributariess.
It is possible to contact any of the active tourism companies operating around the reservoir and contract some of the activities available, such as canoeing and windsurfing courses. In order to discover the surroundings, we would recommend using the ferry that has connected Santiso and Vila de Cruces since 1977, a continuous and free transport for passengers and cars from one shore to the other.

Access

On the N-547 in Arzúa, right on the French Pilgrims’ Road to Santiago, take the AC-7901 to Santiso and then turn off to Visantoña, very close to Portodemouros reservoir.
