PR3 Cangostas Hiking

Esposende
Description
“Cangosta” is an overused word in Braga archaism which means extremely narrow footpath, with an irregular route at the periphery of a village, between walls and poorly built fences, snapped by the coating of weeds and wild plants. This will be the main theme of this route where you will be able to grab a walk in most of these “Cangostas” that were recovered and are now appreciated because of its testimony of the ancient times.
