Raxó, Ría de Pontevedra

It retains the maritime and agricultural charm of yesteryear and has been transformed into a small tourist center, which does not take away an iota of its appeal for visitors seeking a bit of the calm that its illustrious neighboring towns lack, which is the fault of the three beaches in its urban environment: Xiorto, Raxó and Sinás for their crystal clear waters and quality of the sand, with a bit of luck you will be able to spot the dolphins that enter the estuary.

Perfect plan with children: Grobit village

The Hobbits, those characters from the literary and cinematographic sagas of "The Lord of the Rings" to which the British writer JRR Tolkien gives life. They have gone to live on the Island of A Toxa , where a small playground is located, ideal for having a good time with the children in O Grove, the Village of Grobits .

The Grobits Village is a small and original playground that recreates Hobbiton , the home of the Hobbits, with its semi-buried miniature houses covered by the nature of the area.

It also has swings, up and down, benches, a magical well and more attractions, created with wood as the main material, that will dazzle the little ones in the family. Your visit is free, and you can visit at any time.

Once you arrive, the first thing you come across is an explanatory poster with the history of the Grobits : “The Grobits are beings that live in the depths of the thermal waters of A Illa da Toxa and come out into the air — it is not quite clear what days— going up from the thermal crevices to connect with the well that you will be able to see in the village. The earth in the well turns to water when they emerge , and turns back to black earth and plants the moment they step on the forest floor. They wander among the centuries-old pines, going up and down like squirrels and, when they are tired, they open the doors of the houses that you see, to enter to regain strength. It's useless knocking on the door. They are never open, unless they want to go outside or intend to return to the depths of the thermal faults below this island. Have a lucky day and get to see some! This is like the lottery, there are thousands who play, but there is always someone who gets it! "

The Grobits, which in case you hadn't noticed yet, the name comes from the fusion between O Grove and the Hobbits , they have their own legend. Many years ago they lived among us, but when human beings became possessive, the Grobits decided to move away and settle in the Central Mount of the Illa da Toxa , to live underground and to come to the surface only through the well that is there. . Adults cannot see them but, on the other hand, children are able to feel their presence .

Here we leave you the location of « how to get to the Aldea de los Grobits Children's Park » .

Route of Father Sarmiento

Ruta del Padre Sarmiento: the variant of the Portuguese Way that runs through all of O Salnés

The route through the Rías Baixas follows the steps taken by Fray Martín Sarmiento to win the jubilee in 1745. In total, 173 kilometers, from Pontevedra to Vilagarcía de Arousa, which combine the best of the landscape, gastronomy and heritage of each town in the Shire.

Route of Father Sarmiento. Combarro


Among the vast territories of the Salnés region, bordering the winding coastline from the municipality of Poio to Vilagarcía de Arousa, the Padre Sarmiento Route follows in the footsteps that the Dominican monk, Fray Martín Sarmiento, traveled on his pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela in 1745, and later in 1754. The variant of the Portuguese Way runs through Salnés lands along 7 stages and 173 kilometers. Throughout the journey, points of high historical, heritage and landscape interest are crossed, such as well-known manor houses and country houses, archaeological sites or picturesque seaside neighborhoods.
But who was Fray Martín Sarmiento? Born in Vilafranca do Bierzo, the Benedictine religious was in turn a renowned Galician writer, father of Romanesque philology in general and Galician in particular; and also, indirectly, the creator of this spiritual version of the Portuguese road in the Rías Baixas. The same monk recorded the feat of his pilgrimage from Madrid to Compostela in the work Viaxe a Galicia, the guide on which the current route made by the Mancomunidade do Salnés is based.
The route begins in the vicinity of the Burgo bridge, in Pontevedra, and extends through Poio, Sanxenxo, O Grove, Meaño, Cambados, A Illa de Arousa, Vilanova and Vilagarcía, in its section through the Salnés; and then continue towards Catoira, Valga and Pontecesures. In its last section, the route converges with the Portuguese Way until it reaches the doors of the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela.

  Stage 1: A balcony to the Pontevedra estuary

This stage is the one that runs through our closest environment . The path of Padre Sarmiento begins in the city of Lérez, crossing the famous Burgo bridge and following the Dominican's trail to the Monastery of San Xoán de Poio . This convent was declared a Historic-Artistic Monument in 1970 and has become a mandatory stop for all those who love art and architecture. The original floor plan of the building dates back to the 7th century, but among its constructions the church stands out, dating from the 17th century, and which mixes classicist and baroque forms.
The route continues to the well-known fishing village of Combarro, one of the most visited towns in the Rías Baixas, which also has the highest concentration of granaries in all of Galicia . Its picturesque picture is completed thanks to the fishing houses, its cobbled streets and the many crossroads that coexist in almost direct contact with the sea. In this stage, of about 25 kilometers in total, you also walk between Chancelas, Samieira and Raxó, culminating in the coastal network at the A Granxa viewpoint , which offers a spectacular panoramic view of the entire Pontevedra estuary . This first tour ends in the tourist capital par excellence of the Rías Baixas, Sanxenxo. The first contact with the municipality includes the Areas area, the promenade and the famous Silgar beach, presided over by its bronze ambassador, Madama de Alfonso Villar.
