Barca Serrana

The "Barca Serrana" is one of the examples recovered so that people can take recreational walks with a gastronomic surprise. On this short tour, we understand how goods were transported in the old days between Penacova and Figueira da Foz. This one carried firewood, carqueja and branches, sold to the ovens in the city and, from Figueira da Foz it used to bring salt and fish, among other products. Currently it is an ecologically sustainable transport.
