  • Route c/app. 21 km from the Centre of the town passing by the former police headquarters of Mina (Casa da Torre) following the first part of PR10 (ore Route) to the village of Santana de Cambas. Continuing to follow the former railroad, now without any official indication you can go to the river port of Pomarão skirting numerous bridges, now destroyed, through existing tunnels 6. Note that 3 of them have between 150 and 170 m, some in arc, there is therefore need for flashlight, some feature access and/or exit with some difficulty, one of them even shows signs of collapse. Oh ... and one has bats, granditos. A very interesting but in some points require attention. Recommend the use of batons.

  • The mines are abandoned, which is too bad, because there are hidden secrets of old lives and mining tradition. I was fortunate to make this visit accompanied by a specialist University professor who served as a guide and explained the history of this site. These mines have existed since the Roman times and it is possible to see small entries where children slaves entered in the depths of the Earth. We can see how the waters were affected by mining. Could invigorate the space, doing guided tours, etc. Already the river beach is very nice, right in the middle of nature, perfect for rest and relazar and hear only the sounds of the environment
