PONTE DE SOR: LEISURE AND WELLNESS AT RIVERBANK AREA.
The Riverbank Area is a reference in the city for leisure and wellness. Ribeira de Sor (the river) is the background for all the surrounding greenery that makes this place ideal to sit down and enjoy a picnic. You can stroll around, heading for the pedestrian bridge, designed by Leonel Moura. If you prefer, ride a bike or do some cardio in the open-air equipment spread around the area, or play tennis. Canoeing and diving in the pool are also good options.
The little ones can stimulate their imagination and motor skills in the children’s playground and its many different types of equipment to please all ages. Fishing enthusiasts may use the fishing track, and those who love walking may put their boots on. Here, in the Riverbank Area, starts a pedestrian trail that allows you to see the Tramaga watermills from the 18th century, and passes through the cork oak area, the montado.
The day just flies by when you are in the Riverbank Area, even the longest summer ones. But don’t go away when the sun starts to set. Stay for the usual shows in the local Amphitheatre and enjoy different kinds of music. And don’t forget to take your Ponte de Sor Genial Picnic along.
