Description of the route
We will begin the route in the recreational area and river beach of Chao de Pousadoiro, in Ribeira de Piquín, a wonderful place worthy of admiration. During the trail, we will continue along the right bank of the river Eo, and we will discover the different fields where the neighbors cultivate and obtain fruitful crops.
More or less in the middle of the route, we can see a hanging walkway called “Colado de Lamas”. And that keeps a great history since the legend tells that during the Carlist War burials of living people were carried out. We follow the path and pass through Las Vegas de Montefurado, reaching the end, at the detour, to Muíño de García. A mill built in 1892 by Mr. José García López and which is made up of two wheels moved by the old system of rodeznos. Here we can also visit two tunnels, used during Roman times, to divert the course of the Rodil River and obtain gold nuggets.
