The 4th Roman road from Braga to Astorga

Paredes de Coura
Description
This is an important Roman road known as the 4th Roman road linking Bracara Augusta (Braga) to Asturica Augusta (Astorga). Located at the foot of the mountain near the fortified settlement of Cossourado, it crosses the municipality of Paredes de Coura. In Rubiães, there is an interesting bridge probably built around this time, and a set of 14 milestones. This road was also used in the medieval times as a Caminho (route) to Santiago de Compostela, an itinerary still chosen today by pilgrims or walkers heading there.
