How to get there: Driving on the N-634 turn to Foz by the kilometer post 31 and drive to the harbour following the signs for "Porto de Foz". (Roadmap)

Distance: 5h10min/23km

From the harbour (5 m) you follow the beach boulevard past an information panel presenting the walking routes and continue along a stone paved walkway with a sign for "Praia da Rapadoira" passing by some statues. Once you reach the Rapadoira beach (8min) (5 m) walk to its other end, where you take a walkway (13min) (5 m) to the cliffs.

Running right on the edge of the cliffs, the walkway opens up nice sea views of the rocks called "Os Castelos" emerging from the water. Along the route you encounter several information panels presenting plants, animals and landscapes as well as lookout spots with benches.

After crossing a bridge (25min) (10 m) you walk ahead close to the rugged coast line. You can step aside from the main path to visit the cape of Tamaniña with Castelo do Carreiro and Punta do Carreiro (33min) (10 m) before you go on to the cliffs above the beach of Llas (44min) (5 m).

Next you pass the beach of Peizás (1h12min) (5 m). After the beach the walkway narrows into a paved path which runs close to the water line. Soon the pavement ends (1h20min) (5 m). The unpaved path leads to a track (1h23min) (10 m), which you follow to the right.

When the track bends left (1h27min) (10 m), branch off to a path which runs again on the edge of the cliffs. After passing the beach of Sarrido (1h35min) (15 m) you continue still a while on the path before it turns into a track.

You come to a narrow asphalt road and turn right (1h44min) (20 m). On the left hand side of the road runs a railway. You pass the sigh for "Ruta das Praias, Área Recreativa da Pampillosa" (1h50min) (5 m). Soon after this sign, you turn left, to a walkway by the river Ouro. The walkway ascends to an asphalt road (1h55min) (10 m). You cross the bridge over the river Ouro and branch off right straight after the bridge, to the other side of Ouro river following the sign for "Ruta das Praias, Castro de Fazouro".

Later, the sign for the "Ruta das Praias, Castro de Fazouro" guides you to the right again (2h09min) (15 m). The asphalt road turns into a track, which narrows into a path. By stone cottages, the path becomes a track again. Follow the sign for the "Ruta das Praias, Castro de Fazouro" to the right (2h16min) (20 m) close to the railway.

When you meet the next signposts (2h24min) (15 m), visit first the Castro de Fazouro on your right (2h26min) to admire the quite well preserved Celtic ruins. From the ruins you enjoy a fine view over the beach of Area Longa to the sea. Return to the signpost and follow the sign for "Ruta das Praias, Capela de Concepción" across the railway. Immediately after that you turn left following the sign for "Ruta das Praias, Capela de Concepción".

You come to an asphalt road and turn right (2h34min) (30 m). Walk some 100 m to the signs for "Ruta das Praias, Capela de Concepción", "Camino dos Reis" and "Lousada" which guide you to the left. Next you follow the sign for "Ruta das Praias, Capela de Concepción" to the left (2h42min) (80 m). Directly after that you branch off right uphill. At the next crossroads, follow the sign for "Ruta das Praias, Capela de Concepción, Igrexa de Santiago de Fazouro" to the left (2h45min) (100 m).

From the chapel of Concepción you see the village of Bargado and the entire coast of Foz (2h48min) (90 m). The road continues downhill to the next sign for "Ruta das Praias, Igrexa de Santiago de Fazouro", which point straight ahead (2h53min) (75 m). At the next junction (2h57min) (65 m) you follow this sign to the right, and at the following junction to the left. Once more the sign for "Ruta das Praias, Igrexa de Santiago de Fazouro" guides you to the right (3h01min) (25 m).

From the church of Fazouro (3h05min) (20 m) you continue straight ahead over the bridge of river Ouro. Later the sign for "Ruta das Praias, Foz 7,7 km" guides you to the left (3h12min) (5 m). Also at the next junction, you follow the sign for "Ruta das Praias, Foz 7,2 km" to the left. When you come to an asphalt road (3h16min) (15 m), turn left. Immediately after that, the sign guides you to the left, to a track. You walk under the railway to a junction (3h20min) (10 m), where you turn right. Return on the familiar route back to the harbour of Foz (5h10min).
