This is an extensive, well-maintained natural space at the mouth of the Ulla River, which links the centre of Catoira with Torres do Oeste and continues as far as the neighbouring municipality of Valga; it thereby follows a section of the Route of the Sea of Arousa and Ulla River. It is made up of a large wetland classified as a Special Protection Area that is included in the Natura 2000 Network.
In addition to its considerable scenic values, it also features regular riverside species such as the grey heron, kingfisher, cormorant, salamander, garter snake, the elusive otter, etc.
To make it easier to access the area and preserve its delicate ecosystem, a large part of the walk consists of wooden footbridges.
