Tips, hints and links

This locality is part of Cernache Bonjardim municipality. This small village is so named because it has mills all along the course of the stream and the small streams that flow into it. The stream going through this village is called the Sertã stream and this is the last place it flows through before finding its way to its mouth in Foz da Sertã.
