PONTE DE SOR: WATERMILLS TOUR FOLLOWING ITS DAMS   Since the Middle Ages that watermills have defined the landscape of the small rivers in the Ponte de Sor area, mainly the creeks from Sor and Longomel. Essential for the waters to gain the power that made the wheels spin, the area around the mill dam is rich in biodiversity, namely certain bird and fish species, and occasionally otters. This tour allies the historic, artistic and natural heritages. At the same time, you get to understand how cereals were transformed in bread up to the early 20th century and you can appreciate the beauty of the surrounding nature. And if the weather is hot, just dive in one of the dams. The scenery is more than perfect for a memorable Ponte de Sor Genial Picnic. BOOK PICNIC
