Castro de Rei has a few pleasant and quiet places for a walk like the area of the fluvial club, located on the banks of the river Azúmara outside the village. During summer one can swim in the calm river waters. You can also approach the parish of Triabá by land consolidation tracks crossing through Matodoso to admire one of the last places where the river flows through the municipality, very emblematic from the hydrological point of view of the county. The river Miño in this parish diverges into two branches and converge again after a few meters. On the island that this river forms when it diverges, there is a recreational area from where you can admire the beauty of the gentle passing of the water. It’s the Triabá recreational area. Shortly after this natural event you can find the place of Vaxunga. This point is reached on foot following the course of the river downstream. But following the regional route, after Castro Riberas de Lea, nature surprises us again with another of the seven wetlands of Terra Chá, the Lagoon of Caque, hidden among timberline, you can visit on foot or by bicycle, heading toward a path that leaves the right side of the road. If you pay some attention you can be delighted with a whole life documentary on the lake from the observatory prepared just for that.
