Bike Touring Highlight
The Romans left their mark on the area as this was an important road that linked the region with Tui. A magnificent bridge whose first stones were placed on the riverbed by the great Roman architects. The bridge underwent great modifications, in the 15th and especially the 17h century due to the conflicts and wars with Portugal. The bridge was modified to monitor the passage to the lands of Tudenses (Tui). This is evident by the various fortifications on both sides of the bridge, which today are mostly demolished and covered by vegetation. But the most remarkable thing about this area was the location of a fortress that was part of a military network made up of fortified buildings along the Miño River. The rearmaments of its foundations are hidden under hundreds of square meters of nearby vineyards.
