Traditional architecture / ethnography and landscape
The pathway runs through Ourense lands brimming with history. On the way from the provincial capital to the village of Padrendo, you can visit the Monastery of Celanova, the Visigothic Church of Santa Comba de Bande, the Roman camp of Aquis Querquennis, the thermal waters of the River Caldo and the old Roman Via Nova with remains of its pavestones and a number of milestones. Small deviations take us up to the Baroque Church of O Terrachá or the Muiños Megalithic Park.
The route continues along the valley, between the foothills of Sierras of Santa Eufemia and O Xurés. Apart from environmental values, this area conserves a wealth of ethnographic attractions with interesting examples of the area's rural architecture.
We are in the "raia", frontier territory where the Galician Natu-ral Park "Baixa Limia-Serra do Xurés" and the neighboring Portuguese National Park "Peneda-Gerês" they have blurred the administrative limits and form a Cross-border Park that is unique in Europe.
