From Lobeiras to Santa Mariña

From Lobeiras we start this route to the port of Santa Mariña, a port that we the Trasnos don´t understand how it does not appear in any official route. It is unknown by most of people, and it is another unique part of this Camiño dos Faros.

Huge “restingas” that get into the sea, thousands of rocks and stones that form unique spots and small “coídos” a sea of rocks that we see constantly along the route.

It is a 2-kilometer stretch, a bit demanding because of the rocks and the gorse bushes, but it´s worthy enjoying it with no rush to finish it. Stop and enjoy it…

Just to finish, and after such beautiful views, we get to the port of Santa Mariña. This stage is amazing.

From Traba to Camelle

From Mórdomo, there is a route that takes us to the end of the beach Traba towards some other stretches that are considered to be one of the most amazing in this Camiño dos Faros.

All this coast leading to Camelle takes you back to Gulliver´s fairy tale and his world of rocks, a new kind of landscape in this route. Huge rock formations that are as beautiful as the Penedos de Traba, that surround the valley.

From Mórdomo we go through a succession of rock formations, “furnas” and small coves full of pebbles that seem to challenge the rough sea of Traba that hits Punta Corbeiro constantly.

Huge granite rocks of all shapes and sizes…

… which will let our imagination run wild.

Huge rocks that shelter us when the rain starts, another unique image of this Camiño dos Faros.

It is then when, between Traba and Camelle, we reach the bay in Vimianzo that it is the only land lock of this village. Its name is Sabadelle, an old whaling port that had been already used by the Basque fishermen in the 18th century, and, nowadays, it is a cove formed by huge granite boulders. Nearby, there are some remains of an old medieval village and a petroglyphes called “Pé do Santo” (The foot of the Saint)

Doing this part of the route was being one of the most amazing experience in O Camiño dos Faros. A winter day, with the sea rougher than ever as it is typical in this season, had made us have the feeling that the day had flown by very fast (quite literally J ). Little was left to finish and we were arriving in Camelle.

Nariga Coast

O Camiño dos Faros, after visiting Punta Nariga, runs along the coast heading to the Bay of Lago and Niñóns by taking a breathtaking path. They are small cliffs that we walk across by taking a path that is kind of demanding, whereas we are witness of how the sea hits this  immense rock that is Punta Nariga.

If we see right in front of us, we have all the Roncudo skyline, that we will walk along in the next stage. After walking 2 kilometers and passing by “O Coído dos Xunquiños Gordos”, “Pedras das Caniceiras”, “Punta do Roblo”, “Coído do Cheiroso” and “Punta Anguieiro”, we reach a level ground path leading us to LagoBay.
