Structural damage, including landslides in the river basin and detachments of large rocks retaining wall, are jobs that the cleaning company can not solve.The locals warn how dangerous it is to now the path that runs along the river. The problem is that the Louro River Walk, which runs parallel to the A-55, is part of the Portuguese Way and a busy route for dozens of pilgrims a day.
