This is a circular route that starts and finishes at the same point, all within the boundaries of the municipality of Baleira. The “Rutas Das Loras” is 13.1 km long and takes walkers along well-trodden paths.
The name of this route – Loras – refers to the fact that the residents of the parish of Librán, which stands on the paths included in this hiking route, would walk to the communal woodland called “O Carballal” to gather the fine oak twigs that they would then use to make loras – the ropes that held together the centre of the head yokes of the pair of animals used to pull carts or ploughs. They sold their wares at the country fairs and markets held in the surrounding villages and towns such as Meira, Castroverde, and Baralla, or during the festivities of San Froilán in Lugo.
