PR-G 126 RUTA DOS MIRADOIROS LOBEIRA-FARO DAS LÚAS
The route starts in the vicinity of the parish church of András; we walk a few metres down the road and turn
right along a forest track until we come to the first compulsory stop: As Lúas Lighthouse. This stainless steel
construction, whose name means “The Glasses”, was called thus due to the sun’s rays reflecting in the three
glass sections on its upper part, and is an excellent vantage point over the Ría de Arousa and the islands of
Arousa and A Toxa.
The path continues along a forest track that is quite irregular. It takes us to the top of Mount Lobeira (292 m),
the end of this route. At the top there is a viewpoint from where we can observe the island of Ons, O Grove
isthmus, and even O Barbanza mountain range and Salnés Valley on clear days. There is also a monument
to the victims of the sea and a plaque placed by the the British Admiralty, recalling the sailors who lost their
lives when the “Serpent” sank.
Several archaeological excavations on the top of the
hill have uncovered 25 metres of the old wall and
a large cistern, which collected rainwater for the
inhabitants of the fortress.
On the AP-9 that links Santiago de Compostela
and Pontevedra, take exit 119 onto the AG-41 dual
carriageway. Take exit 1 onto the PO-300 and follow
the indications towards the PO-301 and the PO-9701
