One of the side trips we made in August was to a little town called Sargadelos in Lugo. It is famous for a porcelain factory founded in the 18th century, but we went after purchasing a places-you-must-see-in-Galicia book with the ¨Camino de los enamorados¨ or Lover´s Path.
It´s located at the site of the old factory. There´s a small museum on the grounds, along side the Pazo, and the ruins of the old factory and workers quarters.
There was a big sign advertising horseback rides, but we settled for walking the short path.
It follows a stream, with stunning old trees.
And at the end you are rewarded by a small reservoir and water fall.
Sargadelos porcelain has a new factory a little way down the road and is quite famous. But I admit I prefer the older pieces,
the new product line isn´t my cup of tea, as it were, but it is very popular and widely available.
