Community Oven of Pontes

The Community Oven is located in the village of Pontes, about 6 km south of the town of Castro Laboreiro and 1 km from the Spanish border.

Aldeia de Pontes is an inverneira, located in a more protected area of the valley, and served as a temporary residence for the inhabitants in the coldest months of the year. Currently, the village is being recovered for rural tourism and its picturesque appearance calls for a visit.

The Community Oven of Pontes, embedded in the granite outcrop, was used by the villagers to bake not only rye and wheat bread but also bread rolls.
