Toques is a stone water mill with a tiled roof. It consists of a central rectangular nave, a linteled window and a hipped roof. It has an adjoining side nave with a sloping roof and a linteled window, through which the mill’s irrigation system circulates. It also has another small shed attached to the front, with a pitched roof. On the other side of the road, there is a stone stable with a sloping roof, whose purpose was to house the pack animals used to transport the mills. Its total surface area is 177 m2. The property is completed with 5 hectares of land. This Toques Mill is located on the lands of the Primitive Way of St. James, which runs only 12 km away. In the waters of the river Furelos, which crosses the property, it is possible to fish for wild trout.
The watermill of the Fervenza: where the Salgueira and the Porto Salgueiro rivers join their courses in the parish of Brañas, in the municipality of Toques, A Coruña. Together they form the beautiful River Furelos. It flows through altitudes above 500 meters.
As it passes through the aforementioned parish, the river rushes down an almost vertical wall of approximately 40 meters. It is not a problem for the Furelos River, which jumps over it in the form of a beautiful waterfall and then slides down the valley again. The waterfall is of great beauty throughout the year, but in times of rain its appearance is extraordinary. It is the Fervenza de Brañas.
Next to the waterfall, an old partially restored watermill, the “Muíño da Fervenza” (Waterfall’s Watermill in English), used its waters until the 1970s. Its fame was such that even people from other remote areas where there were also mills, they approached it to test the fineness of its grinding.
Without a doubt, one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the province of A Coruña and in the interior of Galicia.
