STARTING POINT OF THE ROUTE OF THE NEVERAS (ICEBOXES)

STARTING POINT OF THE ROUTE OF THE NEVERAS (ICEBOXES)

This is the starting point of the route and the entrance to the area of intervention for the recovery of the "neveras" (iceboxes).

Among pine forests you will discover the neveras (iceboxes) and, a few metres away, the Mámoa de Rofete. Both are ethnographic assets of great archaeological interest listed in the General Inventory of Cultural Heritage of Galicia. Other places of interest that you can visit are the windmill of O Porto and the “devesas”.

In spite of the great economic decline of the 17th century, a remarkable traffic of ice and snow throughout the Iberian Peninsula gained strength at this time. These secondary products mainly supplied urban centres, although they we also consumed in villages and other places. The traded ice and snow were used: preserving food, cooling food and beverages and making ice creams and sorbets, and finally, for medicinal and therapeutic purposes.
