The self-guided urban itinerary for pedestrians and cyclists links the large green areas of the city through natural pavement paths. It consists of three circular lines and four deviations to as many points of interest, from which you can enjoy beautiful panoramic views of the city or get up close and personal with some emblematic buildings.

La Alameda is the starting and returning point of the three circular lines that join the large green spaces of the city through a network of natural pavement paths. All of them run along a common section, although the purple line (16.5 km and 4h43m) takes the variant that crosses the Bonaval park; the blue line (18.4 km and 5h15m) goes through As Cancelas; and the orange line (21.7km and 6h13m) reaches O Pozo da Neve. They are joined by four one-way bypasses that go to Granxa do Xesto (1.7km and 29m), Monte de Deus (1km and 17m), Volta do Castro (0.7km and 12m) and Brandía (1.5km and 26m). The routes are self-guided, can be traveled on foot or by bike and are marked with information panels, tiles embedded in the ground that indicate the direction to follow and beacons that mark kilometer points and slopes.
