Restoration of stretch of the camiño Portugués

In 2007, the Management Society of the Xacobeo Plan ordered us to repair this stretch over a length of 1,400 meters. Once the damages and deficiencies that the stretch had were analyzed; we undertook the designing of the works that basically confined to the causes that were damaging the platform of the way; which were nothing but the many springs and the flowing of runoffs, which are quite plentiful in winter.

The works were carried out during the rainy winter of 2008-2009, an issue that revealed the goodness of the designs of this project. We began by cleaning up the trace of the road and its margins to continue with the collection and drainage of water springs emerging on the road. The planned granular fillers were executed with a gravel drainage base layer and a rolling artificial aggregate layer; being at some stretch protected by longitudinal and transverse bands of granite stone. Stone culverts and fords were built in order to drain runoffs; and only a stretch of about 40 meters of slope was paved, since many waters flow along it in winter. In the rest of the stretches, the ancient and well-preserved pavings of stone and natural rock were uncovered by removing dirt and debris that were covering them.
