"Old Highway Bridge" Geraz do Minho Off The Beaten Path Tip by Bwana_Brown

  Old Bridge
by Bwana_Brown

Once we had reached Cabaceiras de Basto, a few km east of Fafe, we decided to turn directly north into the Serra da Cabreira to have a closer look at the mountains in this area. As we began our climb out of the town, we passed by this older generation of highway bridge, gradually becoming overgrown. It spans the Rio Douro, not the one of Port wine fame, but just a small trickle flowing down off the mountain. Route 311 from here was very scenic as it wound up to the ridge at the top of the Serra which divides the Minho area from Tras os Montes.
