In the concello of Agolada, next to the Camino de Santiago de Invierno, in the place called Borraxeiros, is this beautiful stone house. It is fully renovated outside, with a new roof, new water collection channel, freshly made plates and interior stonework walls. It has water and light installation.
It has an area of 290 m2 spread over three heights, ground floor, first floor and under cover or attic. Through the back of the building, you can directly access the first floor. It is located in a closed estate of 1,800 m2
Describing the area of Agolada we can say that the Ulla River, which forms the northern limit of the area, is the main river; in Brocos it joins the Arnego river before the start of the Portodemouros reservoir. It belongs to the province of Pontevedra administratively and to the diocese of Lugo in the ecclesiastical. The climate is oceanic inland, with mild winters and cool summers. The annual precipitations are of 1,290 mm.
The cork tree which is only present in Galicia in the most sheltered areas of the river, has one of the best mixed forests in Galicia, in the Ulla basin on the banks of its tributary, the Arnego. The cork trees are mainly accompanied by oak trees. The tallest ones can reach up to 25 metres in height, and in the most accessible areas the trunks show the scars of the exploitation of the bark.
One of the best places to approach the Arnego, where the cork tree grows thickly, is the valley of Carmoega, in Agolada. On the path of the mills there is a good fishermen’s path with a recreation area.
