Cangosta is an overused word in Braga archaism, that narrow footpath with irregular and dirt track or not, at the periphery of a village, between walls and hedgerows badly built, clinging by wild coating weeds and plants .This is the main theme of this hiking trail, which can cover much of small and interesting cangostas, which were recovered and reclaimed, as brands and witness of other times.
