Moinhos do Vale do Rio Âncora

Rural Heritage

There are several water mills along the Âncora River valley, once important instruments for making bread every day. Many have not resisted the inevitability of time and have been converted into accommodation or museum areas. This is not the case with the Alhada Mill, located in Riba de Âncora Parish. This is one of the few working mills in the region. Today, grinding is mainly done for the neighbourhood… Much less than in the past, it is true, but it still grinds and at full steam. It underwent constant adjustments over the decades to adapt to circumstances. In this bucolic town, where the force of the water makes itself heard and felt, pay a visit to his historical mill. The scenery provided by the Âncora River valley is worthy of a postcard. Enjoy the visit and unwind in the soothing green spaces of this valley, inviting you to take a family picnic and enjoy pleasant moments of leisure.
