Discover the natural surroundings and beautiful spots close to the River Umia, visiting one of the most characteristic architectural features along the way: mills that used the force of the water to grind grains.

These constructions are not just part of the scenery; they also play a big role in the popular culture – in local songs, dances, sayings, legends – given their great significance in rural Galician life in the 19th and early 20th century.

The route ends at A Armenteira at the entrance to the Cistercian monastery, a jewel of the 12th century founded in honour of St. Ero. Its real treasures are the church and cloisters.
