Rio Teixeira, Aveiro, Portugal

wild swimming Portugal (2)

The River Teixeira is one of the cleanest rivers in Europe. At this point, just below the bridge, there is a poço, a well, carved by two millennia of water. Further down, the gleaming river snakes between mottled feldspar and granite worn to smooth pebbles. The river belly dips deep and a rope swing dangles over. On a sunny afternoon the water is shaded by a green, dappled canopy.
From Couto de Cima take M569 north to Parada and continue on the N227. Park in the lay-by just before the bridge. Follow the path down some rocks, steep scrabble.
