Route Pools of O Castro – Coucieiro

The pools of O Castro (Caldeiras do Castro) is one of the most charming natural spots in the district. The rapids and the waterfalls of the natural setting are fascinating, and you can relax, with the silence broken by the sound of water, at the recreational area you can find next to it.

Pass along various small interior centres of the Municipality where magnificent houses can be seen, amongst which there are two noble houses with a coat of arms and the church of Coucieiro, baroque construction from the first half of the 18th Century, in which three interesting altarpieces are preserved.

Towards the end, you walk, accompanied by a riverbank woodland full of species that grow alongside the river course.
