EPISODE DESCRIPTION

I decided to slot this amazing place in to the Noia and Galicia towns section because it isn't a town and the district it is in, "Santa Maria de Roo", has no other real attractions. In any event, if you visit "Pesqueria del Tambre" you will probably be based in or around the Muros-Noia bay.

I am going to start by telling you how we first found out about this place and then I will give you a virtual tour.

In 2004 we picked up a leaflet about Noia which depicted, amongst other things, a really impressive looking building, but on translating the description, it appeared to be nothing more than part of a hydro electric generating plant. In actual fact that is exactly what it is, but the building and more to the point the place itself, are nothing short of awe inspiring - at least we think so.
About the Pesqueria del Tambre
Tambre hydro building

The Pesqueria del Tambre is a hydro electric generating plant located in a valley which acts as a natural collection point for water running off the surrounding mountains and feeding in to the Tambre river. The photo to the right depicts the main building that holds the machinery used for this purpose, although there is no outward indication that it is anything other than a large and impressive structure.

In order to reach the Pesqueria del Tambre you head both inland and upwards and at one point get a brief, but stunning, high level view of what awaits you below. The road, which meanders and winds, has little in the way of confirming sign posts and I am sure that some potential visitors turn back, concluding that they are on a road to no where - fortunately we did not.
