WELCOME TO MOINHO DO QUARTA

Moinho do Quarta is set along the banks of the river Bazágueda.  The river flows along the ‘Serra da Malcata Natural Reserve’.  It is one of the 30 areas officially under protection since 1981 as part of a project to rescue the endangered Iberian Lynx from the brink of extinction in Portugal.

We invite you to enjoy the tranquility and peace that the surrounding nature has to offer. The ideal environment to relax and appreciate nature.

A military map of our area of 1971.

Sadly since industrialisation in the 1980s, the operation of the mill could no longer be maintained and the land was sold.

We were told that 60 families along the Rio Bazágueda earned their living with the operation of a mill and all the people from the surrounding villages came here to grind their grain.

One of our future projects will be to restore the mill back to its original state to give our guests and other interested people the opportunity to admire at this old craftsmanship and thus preserve it.
