Directions to Coastal Walk Oia-Mougás.
This walk takes in the landscape and archaeology of the coast at Oia including the parishes of Oia,Pedornes,Viladesuso and Mougás.
The walk starts at the viewpoint on the Oia to Torroña road where there is a signpost to the petroglyphs A Pedreira (Santa María de Oia). Within 400 metres to the left are the petroglyphs, Altos da Pedreira, which are pre-historic and are over 4000 years old. After 3 kilomteres we stop on the left to visit the petroglifos de Pousadela which again are pre-historic, over 4000 years old.
After 6 kilometres from the start we encounter Sobreiras do Faro,an ancient,Mediterranean cork forest drained by the river Brio, the most interesting area of environmental interest in the whole of the lower Mino zone of this part of south Galicia. We can return on the same route.
Alternatively we can start from Casas do Sobral in Viladesuso and climb up to reach the path and turn left to carry on.Eventually we reach a tarmac road which we climb until we reach another path on the left which we descend for another kilometre until we reach the pools (As Pozas) at Mougás. This is a great place for a picnic.
We can either return to Oia or carry on to Cabeciña, a fortification, and there are pre-historic petroglyphs which date back about 400 years on the hill, one of the most important in south-west Galicia. At the end of this fort there are commanding views looking out to sea and Oia to the south. We then descend to Camping O`Muiño.
The whole walk is a total distance of about 30 kilometres but if done in stages this would be about half this allowing about 3-4 hours to complete.
