Starting point: along the ski track of the Skiparque enterprise.
On the Reboleira Route you can admire landscapes marked by the human presence, through the villages dotting the intense green horizon with white houses, sculpted by the flaps on the ground, terraces, marshes, leafy forests and uncultivated grazing areas. It is still possible to witness the influence of the schist in the typical mountain houses and in the walls that adorn part of the path and that typify the landscape.
One of the most prominent locations in the Reboleira Route, is the Souto do Concelho. Locally known by “Reboleiro”, this wild tree produces small but very tasty chestnuts that are dried by the fireplace in winter and were an important food source in the past. The Souto do Concelho acquires a multicolour expression of extreme natural beauty in the autumn.
