An attractive, easy route that takes us, from north to south, across the hillsides of Serra do Galiñeiro, to finish on Monte Aloia or San Xulián.
We begin in the mountain refuge hut of Club Montañeiros Celtic, which we can reach via the PR-G 1 and, heading southwards, we cross forests of pines and eucalyptus with beautiful views over Vigo and its ria, the area of Val Miñor and the towns of Baiona and Tui. In route, we come across prehistoric remains and typical rural houses.
In Monte Aloia, declared a Natural Park in 1978, we can see a great variety of tree species, visit the Castro (Celtic fortress) and enjoy some wonderful views over the River Miño and Portugal from the viewpoints.
From the PR-G 1. By road it iseasier to access from the south, going up from Tui to Monte Aloia Natural Park.
The Ways of St. James
Thanks to its strategic situation, this hill was silent witness to a number of battles in ancient times. Some historians
identify it as Mount Medulio. It could be here where, according to legend, the Galicians heroically resisted the Roman invasion, preferring collective suicide to submission or slavery.
