Arquitectura tradicional / Etnografía / Interese paisaxístico
The route starts at the Alto do Confurco, located in the parish of Cans. At the beginning there are several wooden stairways and boardwalks to help us over some very uneven land, while passing by the stream of Couso that once fed the seven Mills of Laxe.
From this point, the route winds through vineyards, meadows, cornfields, fountains and villages; an enjoyable and beautiful mosaic that shows what life is and above all was like in rural Galicia.
Once on the Alto de San Cibrán we come down parallel to the river Caselas towards the bottom of the valley, where most of the houses and buildings of interest are located, like public washing places, windmills and the Peto de ánimas de O Carballal.
The last stretch of the trail runs through San Xurxo community mountains until the end of our journey in the recreation area of As Conforcadas. At this point we can choose between joining GR-58, the As Greas route, and returning to the Alto de Cans.


On the A-52 dual carriageway heading towards Ourense, turn off onto the N-120 towards Cans shortly after passing O Porriño. A few metres away, on the Alto do Confurco, there is a post indicating the beginning of the route.
