Santa Mariña Route
In our village we have put together a small route that allows us to recall our guest's journeys. Leave through the gate at Casa de Trillo, turn left, and go through Camino do Picho, pass the fountain with the small picnic area and Chapel. Turn left and you will enter the forest which starts off with eucalyptus trees and ends with a beautiful oak wood where a stream passes whose waters used to collect at the windmill, which today lies abandoned. From here you can enter the property of a family dedicated to oak, pine, and pasture. After wandering through this property, we will return back to our route and follow the direction indicated by the arrows. Soon we arrive at the outdoor washing area and go back into the village through the west. Some historians maintain that Santa Mariña was an ancient fortified settlement, and this journey will enable us to prove this.
One of the journeys is the one that unites the churches of Santa María de Morquintián, San Cristovo de Nemiña and Santa Leocadia de Frixe. The other route will encompass the churches of San Xiao de Moraime, San Martiño de Ozón y San Pedro de Leis, passing the stretch of the Way of St James to San Martiño, and then via interior roads to Leis.
Cape Touriñán Route
A route departs from Nemiña Beach that takes us to the Cabo de Touriñan which is the most westerly point in the Spanish Peninsula. In the area surrounding the Cape we can find fishermen's paths that lead to the fierceness of the Atlantic and we can enjoy beautiful sunsets.Here we can truly understand the meaning of “Costa da Morte” (Coast of Death)
Way of Saint James
We take in the pilgrims on the Way or in Muxía. The Jacobean Extension reaches these lands, a place where medieval pilgrims came to discover the End of the World. The path along the Plaza de Obradoiro, descend by the Carballeira de San Lourenzo and cross the municipalities of Ames, Negreira and Mazaricos. In Dumbria, by the Hospital area, the path forks towards Fisterra and Muxía. The two towns connect next to the Atlantic in a bi-directional path (a stage) that goes through Cape Fisterra, Duio, Rostro Beach, Lires, Baosilveiro, Guisamonde, Morquintián, Monte Facho de Lourido, Xurantes and the Sanctuary Virgen de la Barca in Muxía. From Hospital you can get to Muxía by crossing Dumbría, Trasufre, Senande, A Grixa de Villastose, Quintáns, San Martiño de Ozón, Moraime, San Roque, Chorente and de la Cruz Beach. More information is available on the website Asociación Gallega de Amigos del Camino de Santiago.
In all this area there are other routes that guests staying at Casa de Trillo can enjoy: Cape Vilán-Cementerio de los Ingleses, Mórdomo-Camelle and Monte Pindo are some that we can recommend.
