From the parking place (10 m) you walk down to the harbour, where
you take the steps to a
lane. Turn right. Little later you branch off
left to a very narrow lane (5min) (15 m). Walking along the lane on the
cliffs you look down to the
lighthouse and rocks surging from the sea.
After a chapel on your left you continue along a street with houses on
both sides through the village. When you come to a crossroads by a
school (Escuela) go straight ahead.
Once you have left the village behind you walk along a narrow asphalt
road lined by benches opening up a

fields bends right. Follow the sign for

Soon the sign for Viavelez guides you to the left again (50min) (40 m).
When you come to another junction with signs (1h02min) (35 m), turn
left for "Punta Mirallos". From this cape you see curious rocks with
caves and cavities (1h05min) (15 m). Return to the junction and
continue to the left to a pine forest.
Next you branch off left for "Lagunas de Salave" (1h15min) (40 m)
and straight after that to the right on a track that snakes its way to
the lagoons (1h19min) (25 m).
Also at the next junction (1h25min) (45 m) you turn left towards "Viavelez".
Soon the asphalt road bends left away from the N-634 running on your
right. At the next fork (1h29min) (50 m), you go left.
After passing some buildings with
loopholes on the walls you fork
right (1h32min) (45 m). At the next fork (1h39min) (30 m) you follow
the sign to the left. From the crossroads (1h45min) (40 m) you go
straight ahead in accordance with the sign. The
track bends right.
Ignore all side tracks towards the seashore until you come to a
junction with signposts (1h55min) (45 m). Here you turn left. At the
next junction the sign guides you to the right (2h01min) (55 m) and at
the following to the left (2h07min) (50 m). Walking through a village

for "Cargadero de Porcia" to the left (2h30min) (15 m) to a
point (2h37min) (10 m). Looking down you see two
rocks with rests of an
old bridge, that used to be between them to serve the loading of ships.
Return to the crossroads and follow the sign for Viavelez straight
ahead. The river
Porcía keeps you company on your left. At a junction
(2h45min) (15 m), follow the sign for "Palacio de Campo" to the right.
Almost immediately, you have to turn right towards "Palacio de Campo".
From now on you follow the waymarks of the St James pilgrimage route
(Camino de Santiago), yellow
seashells and arrows.
All along the way, you encounter old
houses, which used to
belong to the emigrants who became rich in America and turned back to
their home country. Almost without exception you see
loopholes on their

(2h51min) (45 m), straight ahead (2h55min) (55 m), to the left and
straight ahead again (3h) (50 m).
After passing a church in Salave you go straight ahead at the
crossroads (3h12min) (55 m) and continue straight ahead until a large
yellow arrow on a wall shos the way to the left.
When you reach the N-634 (3h16min) (55 m), turn right, walk some 15
meters and branch off right. At the next junction, go left (3h29min) (55 m) and return along the already familiar
route back to the harbour
