After leaving O Porriño, the route soon reaches As Angustias Chapel. It runs along the N-550 road, making it especially important to be on the lookout for vehicles. The Louro River can be heard nearby but is hidden from view. Leaving behind the Amieiro Longo neighbourhood, we come to A Rúa, once the municipal capital of Mos.

Mos- O Souto

  • Length 6.9 Km
  • Difficulty Low
  • Estimated Duration 1h 25min

A stone cross with the inscription ‘Camino de Santiago’ marks the start of Os Cabaleiros Street, which leads to a cross monument of the same name. At O Enxertado, with the valley to the east, there is a slight climb up to Santiaguiño de Anta Chapel, a simple monument surrounded by a lovely carballeira (oak wood).

A Roman milestone (1 Roman mile = 1,480 metres) which once formed part of Via XIX– linking Braga and Astorga, as mentioned earlier–guides the way to the municipality of Redondela. We soon reach Vilar de Infesta. Pine and eucalyptus woods are an important feature of this stretch of the route. This section ends at the legendary Chan das Pipas.
