Ponte do Porto

<<Getting into the rural areaCereixo>>

This place is named after the bridge over the river Grande next to its mouth that dates back to the 13th century. This small port was important for its popular timber trade becoming the main point of this business all around the area long time ago.

We walk across the medieval bridge that is in the center of the village. On the other side we can see St. Peter´s Church, which keeps a very interesting collection of lacework. Apart from this, we can also see the houses made of stone overlooking at the river. It is actually worth stopping and seeing them.

Along the walk by the river till Cereixo we can see ducks and some other aquatic birds that find this mouth their best habitat.
