Route along the Tambre river
We set off from the beautiful Alameda de Noia in search of the work of one of the most brilliant architects of Spanish modernism. Antonio Palacios, author of the Palacio de Comunicaciones in Madrid, the Votivo do Mar church in Panxón, the Veracruz church in Carballiño, or the building of the town council of his native Porriño, is also the author of the Tambre Hydroelectric Power Station, towards which we direct our steps. As soon as we reach the river, we are accompanied by spectacular views in the midst of particularly lush vegetation. The Hydroelectric Power Station will surprise us with its beauty; modernism makes use of the forms of nature, which is why the building blends in so well with this area. A pond contributes to the serene atmosphere of the site. If we continue north, we approach the leafy Nimo forest. We return and cross the river over a suspension bridge. We are now in the municipality of Outes. We descend towards the Pazo do Tambre, a beautiful building dedicated to the hotel industry, which has well-tended gardens. To cross the river again and start the return journey, there is nothing better than crossing Pontenafonso, one of the most beautiful examples of a medieval bridge in Galicia, which also allows us to enjoy the Tambre estuary, an extraordinary area protected for its ecological value.
