  • Museum of free access, which in addition to opening hours, has another schedule of functioning of the mills. We can visit him while they are working, or have the luck of having them moving. In addition to the interesting thing about the mechanisms, it has lovely views, and is within walking distance of the Cathedral, and relatively close to parking areas.

  • The dramatized visit 'Sensatio' has been a very nice way to learn about the water mills of olive groves, a type of medieval mill in high flow like the Douro rivers, which were very important for the economy of the city since that time. The first written reference of the water mills of olive groves is the year 986 a.d., reached its peak in the 13th century (when that probably matches your current structure) and have been in use until the beginning of the 20th century. Fortunately, they preserved almost unchanged because they currently works the center of interpretation of the traditional industries of the water.
