The municipality of Abadín is one of the municipalities from A Terra Chá crossed by the North Way of St. James, with a path that runs along the hillside Pena da Roca up to A Xesta. There, the Lugar of Galgao is known for the shrine of San Cosme da Montaña, a place of worship where every September 27th a mass procession is held. On the façade you can see a shell that invites to turn left on a road that crosses the National-634 to reach Gontán, where the hostel for pilgrims and various services such as bars, pharmacy and a small supermarket are located.

It is the shortest route of the network of trails of A Terra Chá with only 5.7 km that run through the inside of a “fraga” (forest), uniting in its route five water mills built along the river Fraga. It has a linear path that starts in the Lugar da Laxe, next to the restored Corvite mill. In this stretch the path runs parallel to the Anllo river, covered by a riparian forest. Then it crosses the road and runs along an old wagon road that serviced the intense activity developed in this small river

We enter A Terra Chá, a region from Lugo which, as its Galician name suggests, is characterized by a packed flat grassland path. We leave Abadín next to the post office and continue along a track, wide enough, to take a path that goes at right hand between oaks and crosses a wooden bridge. A short climb takes us back to a paved track with long straights that will alternate with some shadier paths up to Martiñán, where we cross the N-634. Later we pass Pontevella of Martiñán, the first of the bridges characteristic of the Terra Chá.
- Duration – 12-15 hours full stretch
- Length – 22 Km.
