Description

Leaving Visuña behind, we come to the beautiful hamlet of Ferramulín, where we can still find a working mill in the centre of the hamlet. In this area, where the Visuña and Selmo rivers join, we can see small agricultural/stockbreeding constructions which came about due to the need generated by harvesting and shepherding tasks. These are a good example of the mountain range's traditional architecture. These structures are plentiful in other areas of O Courel and are generally away from the main towns.
Just on a curve to the left, on the first ascent when leaving the last village, is the signpost of the descent to the Vieiros cascade, which we can reach by making a short journey on foot. It is also visible from above if we continue a few metres along the road.
