Camiño da Geira e dos Arrieiros
This route links the town of Braga with Santiago de Compostela over a distance of 239 km.
The first 68 km of the route, from Braga Cathedral to the River Limia in Lobios, follow the Roman road known as Geira, which linked Bracara Augusta with Austurica Augusta. Over the next 40 km, in the area of Castro Lobeiro, altitudes of 1040 m are reached. It then descends to 400 m and enters the area of the Miño River and Ribeiro, where the vineyards abound. The last 92 km correspond to the main route followed by the ancient transporters of Ribeiro wines to Compostela, known as the Arrieiros.
