The surroundings of the Madalena river set the scene for the river walk, near Vilalba town centre. The route begins at the mill Molino del Rañego ( 500 metres from the villa, on the road leading to Baamonde) and ends at the river beach.
Going upriver the walk is dominated by a proliferation mills, due to the historic cereal tradition of the region. Some of the most outstanding examples are the Pasos mill or the great mill of the Madalena river.
In this area of the river you can see an island, giving the walker a chance to see various species of forest and ornamental trees.
The next point of interest is the last stage of the route: the river beach. There is a picnic area here where the walker can rest and it also offers a variety of leisure activities such as river bathing or the swimming pool, plus various other sports.
This summer of 2008, a new stretch of about 1.5km will be inaugurated. It will get to the bridge Ponte dos Ferreiros.
