This unique archaeological site was declared a World Heritage Site on August 1, 2010 as an extension of the archaeological park of the Coa Valley. It is located next to the banks of the Águeda River, about 15 km downstream from the town of Ciudad Rodrigo (Salamanca). There is also a bridge and an old mill with the same name where the course of the river has its last ford before flowing into the Arribes. In this site we can find pools that contain water, even at times when the stowage is greater.
