Discovering Sistelo - Hiking Tour

Our tour begins in the typical village of Sistelo also called "Little Tibet".<br><br>We will mostly use cobbled paths that will take us through fields and villages, giving us a wonderful view of a landscape marked essentially by terraces where the cultures are carried out and which are the origin of the name "Little Tibet".<br><br>We will continue our tour using also the catwalks and the Ecovia of the River Vez that with its green banks completes a frame worthy of the most idyllic places. We end our journey again in the village of Sistelo.<br><br>The route does not allow meals in catering units and it is, therefore, the responsibility of each one to carry the food and drink necessary for the entire journey.

The “Paço de Giela” is also located into the region of “Arcoz de Valdevez”. On your arrival you can turn to your left and you will find a spacious car park for free, and so you will have to walk a small distance up-hill to the castle. Paço de Giela is a remarkable example of the
