Duero River

Our great natural monument, the Duero River, completely surrounds us. Vadocondes sits on one of his meanders of the middle high course. The municipality is crossed by its waters from east to west.

The villa built a great safeguard in the eighteenth century to defend itself from its comings and goings.

The Douro passes through our municipality with a very gentle slope; of it we use its waters to irrigate with them our crops, the basis of the economy of the people; both by one margin and on the other there are irrigation channels. The Guma or Queen Victoria canal on the left bank and the Aranda canal on its right bank.

Its waters have also been used throughout history to produce electricity in the mills of the village; or to grind grain and turn it into flour. Currently there is a hydroelectric plant in the same enclave of an old mill.

At the entrance to the village we find towards the middle of the wall a jetty that is used for use and enjoyment of the river.

Through our villa passes the great Duero Route, a walk that you can not miss no one who likes to enjoy nature; the walker can, from his zigzagging way to the river, observe and listen to the different animals that make up the native fauna of the middle course of the river. Not forgetting its flora, its large riverside trees, its shrubs and other plants that in its fresh environment are bred.
