Moinho Garcia is a 200 year old, lovely restored watermill. A little paradise. Surrounded by green, terraces with fruit trees, and a little river with waterfalls flowing through the property. There is a big barbecue area under grape and kiwi vines, as well an old bred oven. An oasis to relax.
50 km south of Porto, only 1,5 km from the caminho portugues, in Pinheiro da Bemposta.
Simple,Stylish & Cozy
Moinho Garcia offers 2 bunkbed dorms and a double room. For pilgrims, families, groups or individuals. Kitchen and bathrooms are shared. The interior is simple but tasty. The huge outside area is plenty of charming spots. River, waterfalls, Riverwater-Pool, barbecue area or bread oven. A unique space to rest or to rent for communions, weddings or other events.
The Caminho de Santiago Português
The caminho central is only 1,5 km from the mill. Moinho Garcia is certainly an unique spot on the whole Camino de Santiago. Where else could the pilgrim bathe his tired feet in the cold river water, refresh the exhausted body in the waterfall, or be lulled to sleep by the gentle murmur of the river next to original millstones?
“Moinho Garcia is a very special place, a kind of a dreamgarden...a perfect place to restore,” so a passing pilgrim.
Directly from here, pilgrims can as well seize the opportunity to continue on a coastal track; in 2 days, following the "sandtrail", to Porto.
Special price for pilgrims.
Pick up at the Camino from Pinheiro da Bemposta (1,5 km) till Branca (4 km) is possible.
