Once you made the detour to the right (photo 1 km 0) you enter into the old area of A Rua. At the first crossroads continue on the left (photo 2 km 0.3), cross the square and walk up Rua O Bouzo Street (photo 3 km 0.4). When you reach the end of it, turn left (photo 4 km 0.6). At the crossroads you should continue on the right side of the road (photo 5 km 0.8).
Before you go into the tunnel you should make a detour to the left (photo 6 km 1.3) by a dirt path that later leads to the pervious road. At this crossroads you should turn left and follow the road (photo 7 km 1.8) until you re-enter a more populated area where you should continue on the left at the first crossroads (photo 8 km 2.1). Afterwards you will approach the square where the Church of Fátima de Fontei is located (photo 9 km 2.2).
Cross the square and take the hand-right road towards the church. Follow this road that gently slopes (photo 10 km 2.5) until the kilometer where there is a detour to the right. Go into the tunnel of the N-120 (photo 11 km 2.9) and just after turn left. You will reach a path parallel to the N-120 (photo 12 km 3.2) and just a little further you will pass in front of Residencia Os Pinos (photo 13 km 3.8).
Keep straight on and at the end of the ascent, you will find out that the road leads to another road where you should continue on the right (photo 14 km 4.1) Keep straight on and ignore the first crossroads (photo 15 km 5.4). Go down this road, which is called OU-933, for a couple of kilometers (photo 16 km 6.0).
At one point, you will enter the province of Lugo so the road will change its name to LU-933 (photo 17 km 8.2). One kilometer after entering Lugo, you will approach Alvaredos. You should make a detour to the right in order to enter the town (photo 18 km 9.2). Go through the town until the end of it, where a dirt path begins (photo 19 km 9.3). Take the dirt downhill path (photo 20 km 9.7) until it crosses the LU-933 road (photo 21 km 9.9). Afterwards the path detours to the left (photo 22 km 10.0). This dirt and grass path (photo 23 km 10.2) (which you should follow for 2 km until you get to Montefurado) continuously slopes and is signposted (photo 24 km 10.8). It will lead you to a little town where you should not enter since you should continue on the right and cross the bridge (photo 25 km 11.0). Just after you have crossed the bridge, you should approach a tunnel under the railway tracks that you should not cross, instead, you should continue on the right (photo 26 km 11.1). You will approach the rail station of Montefurado (photo 27 km 11.5). Follow this road that comes out onto another road where you should turn to the left (photo 28 km 11.9). After a few meters there is another crossroads where you should turn to the right (photo 29 km 12.0).
