How to get there: Drive on the LU-530 past the village of Padrón to the south side of Fonsagrada, where you encounter signs for "La Porteliña" and "Ruta do Rellouso" between the kilometre posts 55 and 56. Follow these signs to a narrow asphalt road and continue 2.3 km to the octagonal church of Porteliña (Iglesia octogonal da Porteliña).  (Roadmap)

Distance: 57min/4km

Walk from the church (695 m) along a concrete road through the village until a sign for "O Mazo" guides you to the left, to a track. Right after that you follow the sign for "Fonte O Pocin" to the left, to a path.

The path descents past the fountain of Pocin (5min) (675 m) to a bridge. After crossing the bridge the path continues between a canal and the river Porteliña. Later you cross another bridge by an old mill (12min) (665 m)and turn left to a path.

The path follows the river. When it forks (33min) (635 m), go down right. Immediately after this, you bend right across a bridge. At this point you encounter an old stone building on your left.

The path ascends to a track (39min) (670 m), on which you continue to the right. When it forks (41min) (660 m), go left. This beautiful track ascends gently between trees past the fountain of Chousa (Fonte da Chousa) (52min) (685 m) back to Porteliña. Return back to the church (57min).
