The Winter Way goes through vineyards in the municipalities of Vilamartín de Valdeorras and A Rúa, where the river becomes wider. You leave O Barco de Valdeorras, and reach Arcos after 5 kilometres, already in the lands of Vilamartín.
Further on, you reach the municipal capital with over 200 wine cellars built into the old caves that were used by gold diggers in the past. From here, you continue until A Rúa, where you will find the Forum Gigurrorum, the oldest settlement in Valdeorras where the Gigurros or Egurnion used to live.
In A Rúa de Valdeorras you can see the sculpture of Saint James as a pilgrim in the church of San Esteban.
Other places of interest are the bridge of A Cigarrosa, of Roman origin, and the Casa Grande de Fontel, today a private property.
