mailto:?subject=Content from Tourism of Galicia: PR-G 84 RUTA DE SUBIDA AO PICATO&body=I recommend you read the information PR-G 84 RUTA DE SUBIDA AO PICATO extracted from the Tourism of Galicia site on page https://www.turismo.gal/recurso/-/detalle/33828/pr-g-84-rota-de-subida-ao-picato?langId=en_US%26langid=en_us%26tp
In the recreation area, there is an information panel about the path-ways network.
At first, the route involves little difficulty, but as it goes into in the pine forest it grows steeper, until it reaches Alto do Picato (743 m), where you can enjoy splendid views.
The path zigzags and goes downhill, leaving the forest and entering the landscapes of Santiago de Vilapena and its fraga (forest). The return is made over practically flat terrain until we get back to the starting point.
On the CP-55-06 highway from Trabada to As Rodrigas (capital of the Riotorto district), where there is a turn-off to Vilapena.
The Ways of St. James
The Northern Camino
Mosteiro de Lourenzá
A good complement to the route is to visit Vilanova de Lourenzá to see its old Monastery of San Salvador with the parish Church of Santa María de Valdeflores. Built in 1732, it has a tower, never finished due to budget problems at the time of construction. In Baroque style, it was designed by Casas Novoa, an architect best known for the Obradoiro facade on Santiago Cathedral.
The variation covers 1.1 km.
