A sua envolvente está pouco cuidada, existindo construções adossadas a alguns tramos, nomeadamente próximo do Mosteiro de Santa Clara e Igreja de São Francisco.
Do conjunto resta ainda uma grande parte da estrutura inicial, embora já muito fraccionada, sendo o troço da Igreja de Santa Clara e até ao limite do Concelho de Vila do Conde o que melhor conservação apresenta, numa extensão de 500m, num total de cerca de quatro quilómetros.
Por exemplo, na freguesia de Argivai, restam apenas as aduelas dos antigos arcos dentro de uma propriedade; na freguesia de Beiriz já cairam oito arcos e outros, devido à sua inclinação e desgaste, ameaçam ruir.
