Nature Reserves in A Pobra do Caramiñal
Natural Pools of Piedras River
(22)
After about a 20 minute walk, we arrived at this wonderful place. It is a charming place, especially if you go early because around 13h it is very full. Even though you can still go in the different pools. Here is a link I found with the location of the pools.

The viewpoint of A Curota, like A Curotiña a little below it, provides an unbeatable view across the Ria de Arosa, where you can see Cies Islands, Ons and Arosa. Fantastic on clear days.

A Pobra do Caramiñal

Before this trip I had never heard of this beautiful seaside town on the coast of La Coruña known as Costa da Morte. However, it is one of those places which it is worth stopping at to enjoy a good walk and the tranquility of a beach town. It still has a very local and authentic atmosphere, despite the increasing tourism, and continues to maintain its normal rhythm of life (hopefully it will stay that way). Besides visiting the village, its beautiful medieval churches (such as Dean Santiago) and the museum of Valle Inclan, I recommend the tapas on its main promenade. Also, if you plan to spend a weekend there, you should visit the two viewpoints - Curotiña (386 m) and Curota (498 m), which, though not the highest in the Sierra, offer better views of the Ria de Arosa. Also I recommend you do not miss a visit to the spectacular Rio Piedras Natural Pools, one of the best places on the Galician coast, in my opinion. If you go to the Pobra in September, you must also watch the Nazarene procession (also called the 'Mortaxas' or shrouds) held on the third Sunday of September, I'm told it is spectacular.

This is one of the most beautiful viewpoints of Galicia where you can see all the Ria de Arosa and enjoy a unique natural landscape. It's located at the summit of Mount A Curotiña, at 498 m altitude. From here you can see the coast of the region of Barbanza, Vilagarcía, the Isla de Arosa, Vilanova de Arosa, Cambados, O Grove, the islands of La Toja and Sálvora and if the day is clear you can even see Finisterre. There are also free range horses. To reach this viewpoint called "A Curotiña" take the road that goes from the center of Pobra do Caramiñal towards Corrubedo. After about four kilometers you'll hit the Cruz de Moldes junction. Follow the road the road called "Cruz de Moldes" and you'll arrive at A Curotiña.

Villages in A Pobra do Caramiñal
Ribeirina
(1)
"At last we will see the estuary behind this mountain of Uralitas" says a neighbor of A Ribeiriña in reference to the demolition of the factory "La Onza de Oro", a cannery that for years generated employment in the area but also prevented the inclusion of this beautiful corner into the Galician tourist routes (it disfigured the landscape and also emitted a strong, repellent smell. 2010 marks a new era for this small town that has traditionally lived on fishing and most likely will soon draw its income from tourism. The demolition of the old cannery gave back the people, their views over the estuary and beach and will allow them to regain what they lost from the cannery's presence. And this process of conversion is favourably viewed upon by those who live in the tourist zones. According to the mayor they have designed a promenade and leisure areas. The idea is a total regeneration of the town to ensure its presence on the Galician coast tourist route. Changes are already happening within the village: Many houses are under construction, a new coastal promenade connects on one side with Ribeiriña Pobra do Caraminal and on the other Beach of Escarabote the beach, with the Port of Escarabote and Barraña, the beach in the City Council of Boiro. As I said, the neighbors of A Ribeiriña, the Xunta not allow the tearing down of old buildings already situated on the coast, and support a restoration of those extant, but in my personal opinion, in 10 years many houses that we presently see will history. It will be interesting to see what happens in the upcoming months and years around A Ribeiriña.
