This circular route starts in the parish of Santa Cristina de Cobres, in the country village called Areeiros. Behind the rural tourism house known as “Os Areeiros” we begin the route along a forest track that runs next to some farms and gradually moves into a wooded area where the first signs of the petroglyphs come to light, on both sides of the road.
After these initial findings, we recommend taking the diversion to the Acuña Viewpoint, from where we can contemplate a spectacular view over the Vigo Estuary.
After coming back to the main route, about 900 m further on the pathway separates from the forest track and goes up another one until we come to the village of Vilar. After crossing this little core of houses, we come to a small hill where you will find various petroglyphs. From here the trail goes back down to the rural tourism house.
Access: On the N-550 from Pontevedra to Redondela, turn onto the N-554 in Vilaboa, and once in Cobres take the turnoff to Areeiros.
