São Gonçalo bridge

This granite bridge was built over the Tâmega River in the late 18C. A plaque on one of the obelisks guarding the bridge entrance on the left bank commemorates the victorious resistance of General Silveirea, future count of Amarante, on the 2 May 1809, when he confronted Napoleon's troops led by General Loison.
