Following the right bank of the River Sil, the Winter Way leaves the province of Ourense and enters Lugo through the municipality of Quiroga. The village of Albaredos marks the 7-kilometre landmark.
The path continues between vineyards and olive trees in the village of Montefurado, with the church of San Miguel, to then go past Bendilló. This whole area is called the Ribeira Sacra, and there is a Denomination of Origin for the wine produced there. Oil production in the area dates back to Roman times. At the hilltop of Torre Novais, a castle was erected in the 13th century on an old castro (pre-Roman settlement). This place offers great views over the Sil.
There are another 4 kilometres to Quiroga if you take a detour you can see the Conjunto Monumental de Hospital, an ensemble with a Pre-Romanesque church (San Salvador), the 16th-century Casa Torre de Hospital and the Casa da Encomenda, of the same period.
