The River Agueda in Ciudad Rodrigo is a tributary of the Duero River which we first found in Soria. We also found the Duero in Toros and Zamora. The Agueda River rises in the Sierra de Gata. It is 81 miles long (130 kms) and flows into the Duero River at Barca de Alva in Portugal.
The Stone Bridge
The stone bridge is apparently Roman but I can’t find any further information on the internet…
Mills on the river?
This building stands on the riverside just below the castle and I believe it was once a mill, La Concha1 and is now a cultural centre. The river has been divided, suggesting a mill race at some point. A description of a walk involving mills seems to suggest that something used to exist here, outside the town. El Paraje, which seems to be an activity centre c.1.5kms aways, was also a mill.
Park and the river
The park along the river is pleasant for walking, there is a campsite on the opposite bank, cafes, and the river is apparently safe for swimming and canoeing.
The park along the River Agueda in Ciudad Rodrigo provided an easy and level walk for me and was very enjoyable.
