Package Tour “A Lampreia e as Pesqueiras do rio Minho”
Melgaço presents the tour package ” A Lampreia e as Pesqueiras do rio Minho”, during the Minho River Fishermen’s Festival.
The circuit “Lampreia e as Pesqueiras do rio Minho”, is an initiative in collaboration with the fishermen, the Captaincy of the Port of Caminha and the Municipality of Melgaço, and arose with the purpose of preserving and disseminating the fishing areas of the Minho River, as well as the fishing art developed there, which was passed on from generation to generation and which remains until today. The action consists of guiding tourists through the access trails to the fishing grounds, exemplifying the whole process of the art of fishing, by the fishermen themselves, from the construction of the nets to their use in the fishing grounds, telling the stories and curiosities about the art of artisanal fishing and the millenary constructions that exist on both banks.
The tour package offers tourists an experience associated with gastronomy, endogenous products and the discovery of their origins, the authenticity of the territory and traditional know-how.
