Description

Traditional architecture / Ethnography / Natural interest
The first part of the pathway runs along the River Umia in Ponte do Ramo. Here is where the ceremony of prenatal baptism was carried out. For this kind of baptism, pregnant women waited at midnight for passersby who became the godfather or godmother of the baby the women were expecting.
We walk along a narrow path through lush riverside woodland until we come to the Great and Small Mills of Puntalta, where we can contemplate the force of the river as it flows past this point. We continue on our way until we come to the restored Mill of Portavezal, which boasts a sharpener for farming tools.
Viewpoint from the Roman road.
In Outeiro dos Campiños we can see the graphic depictions in the rocks, where we could highlight the so-called A Laxe dos Homes, with its anthropomorphic figures.
We then leave Cequeril behind, where we can visit the church and from there, coinciding with the long-distance trail GR-94, we return to our starting point in Ponte do Ramo.
