OUTEIRO DE REI
One of the most important elements of the commonwealth, and also the one that sets Outeiro de Rei appart from the rest of municipalities, is that it can boast of being one of the few Galician municipalities where the population is increasing and now exceeds 5,000 after rising in nearly 600 neighbors over the past decade, this growth manages to reverse the prevailing trend in Galicia and also affects economic and cultural development.
In terms of adventure and nature this concello is a paradise for hikers: it has two municipal routes, Miradoiro da Terra Chá and the Camiño do Miño, the first of them approved by the Xunta. In addition the path of the Diputación de Lugo “As Insuas do Miño” links Outeiro de Rei and Rábade. The suspension bridge in Parada, which allows access to the island of Seivane, with native flora, is another landmark.
Other attractions are:
Marcelle, with animals from five continents.
Avifauna, with many-colored birds of many latitudes.
Penas de Rodas, in Outeiro de Rei, where you can see two large granite stones almost perfectly spherical, seated on very small bases.
