Varosa river flows into the left margin of Douro river, almost in front of Régua. In its final track after Lamego, this river supplies a considerably big dam. Next to it, it is situated one of Portugal’s most ancient hydroelectric barrages. You can still observe the former piping supports through which water flew to a small central. Downstream, there is a peculiar stone bridge, built to support a railway line connecting Régua to Lamego. However, this line was never finished and trains never circulated there.
