Description

This route begins by the old rectory of Fofe, leading down to the Maceira river beach leisure area, and to the Os Carranos water mill. Along the way the riparian forests by the source of the Tea river, with their natural beauty, together with the stylized Roman bridge in Fofe, probably from the Medieval period, offer spectacular views of the river’s pools from above.

The movement of the water wheel of the Os Carranos mill, built in1922, can still be seen, moved by the water from the Vixiáns brook. The mill takes its name from the fact that in the old days carts (carros) were built there and it had a wood drying and storage area, as well as a small forge to manufacture the iron fittings for the cart wheels.
