About

This easy, circular stage aims to uncover the rich plateau in the northernmost area of the National Park.

Explore some summer villages on its edge that reveal centuries of adaptation of the population to this harsh environment.

Discover megalithic monuments, namely burial mounds, dolmens and engraved rocks - evidence of the human occupation of this territory for, at least, 5000 years - on a smooth landscape with scattered peatbogs used mainly as a grazing area.

Celebrate the end of this stage/crossing on the Castro Laboreiro’s castle, overlooking some of what we hiked the days before.
