This beautiful route begins in the village of Villar de Vildas, an exemplary village in 2004, located in the Pigueña Valley, Somiedo. At 400 meters, we leave the town by a concrete track that runs to the left of the Pigueña river.
In the first kilometer of route approximately, we already find the first brañas, like that of Vildeu. The brañas can be defined as the population space, rich in pastures and water, inhabited by vaqueiros during summer grazing. They were designed to make the most of natural resources, and they were used for communal use, when spring came, they were occupied jointly by the farmers.
At the height of kilometer 3.6, we find the braña de la Pornacal. It is the largest and best preserved of all Somiedo brañas. Of the 370 cabins registered in Somiedo, this braña is where most of them are registered, about 33. The Pigueña River divides the braña in two and in the center we can find a source to refresh ourselves.
Two kilometers ahead of the previous point, we found a bridge that crosses the river, where we can also see the Corralón waterfall. About 400 meters further, we find a crossroads, we continue straight towards another set of teitos, the braña de Los Cuartos.
At the end of the route, Km 6.5, we are already in the Braña de los Cuartos or braña Viecha (old braña), even older than the Pornacal.
We will return to the starting point of the route along the same road.
