This circular route begins in the parish of Santa Cristina de Cobres, in the rural nucleus called Areeiros. Pordetrás of the rural house known as "Os Areiros", we start the route through a forest track that runs alongside some farms and gradually enters into a wooded mass where the first samples of petroglyphs will emerge, both sides of the road. After these first discoveries, it is recommended to take the turnoff to the Mirador de Acuña from where you can contemplate a spectacular panoramic view of the Vigo estuary. After returning to the main route, about 900m, the trail separates from the forest track and climbs up the road until you reach the neighborhood of Vilar. After crossing this little hill of houses, a small hill rises where several petroglyphs are located. From here, the trail goes down again to the rural tourism house. Path approved by the Galician Federation of Mountaineering. ********************************************* ************************************ This circular route starts at the parish of Santa Cristina de Cobres, in the country village called Areeiros.
