TRAPS OLD FACTORY
After crossing the bridge over the river Carregueira in the direction of Penhascoso, you will find on the right side, the ruins of what by the 1930's / 1940's was the factory of ribs (wire traps with an oval configuration), still existing and intended to be created bird traps.
Its execution was totally manual, it was simply done by the owners and some punctual collaborators.
For its execution there were only small molds where the wire was wrapped as well as simple tools of the time (hammers, turquoises, pliers and little more manually made for this purpose).
After their execution and the need to sell, they would walk with some of the production inside a bag to places where a fair could take place or to the Belver station where by train they would go to more distant places like Abrantes, Entroncamento, etc.
