The river Leça borns in Santo Tirso County, in the southern slope of Monte de Santa Luzia, in Redundo Place, runing through the southern parishes of the county towards the Atlantic Ocean, flowing near the town of Matosinhos.
Along the river, we can see a variety of fauna and flora cohabiting in their banks as well as find several wind and water mills distributed by the land that the river runs through.
Located in Pereiras, the Serra Hidráulica is a remarkable example of pre-industrial architecture. It is dedicated to sawmilling wood for industrial and domestic use that resortes the power of water to move the mill to saw. It will be rehabilitated, becoming a museum pole of pre-industrial activities. It is classified as Public Interest Property.
