The Xabriña river, a tributary of the Tea, becomes the true protagonist of this circular route that starts from the parish of Paraños and visits other places such as Prado de Canda and A Lamosa. In addition to the exquisite vegetation that it presents on its banks, along the path you can enjoy an extraordinary ethnographic and cultural richness, as we have all the elements of great value and good conservation status, such as the parochial church of Paraños , several ancient cerers such as "Lagar da Cera" in Portocortiñas, almost thirty mills along the river, traditional paths, fountains, waterways and bridges such as "Ponte Folón". Its circular structure is divided into two large rings. The first one runs through the river from Paraños, through leafy forests, to Ponte Folón. The second ring that visits Prado and A Lamosa, brings us closer to the Mirador de Cotos da Bouza and to small villages where you can know the activity of the ancient artisans who worked to work with wax. In addition, on various points of the road we can enjoy panels that collect poetry from the Galician poet Uxío Novoneyra from his book entitled "The Eidos."
