Hiking Routes in Rois ↓

A low difficulty hiking route, with an approximate length of 11,100 meters that goes along the Sar and Liñares rivers in Rois.

The route has a portion that goes through a place called A Meana, which follows the Sar river´s course until its encounter with its counterpart the Rois river. If we take the path on the river bank we can enjoy typical riberian vegetation such as oak, birch ect.

In about barely an hour on our journey, we will arrive to the river beach of Seira, which is the point where we leave the river bank to explore the villages of La Peruca, Cornes O Aido and Carrais, and where we later go back to continue our walk on the river bank of the Liñares river.

From this point on, we will find a number of mills, some in poor condition, others that have been restored and some that still grind corn grains. Just before reaching the village of Liñares, it is important to note the existence of a functioning fulling mill that is still used for linen cultivation which is an important resource in this area.

In this area of the river, meadows alternate with oak trees until the route ends at the Soutullo Chapel.
