The traditional vineyard scenery, dominated by the old, narrow, stone-walled terraces, have been preserved in this region by World Heritage Site status.

The Douro Valley is probably the last of the world’s major wine regions still to be pressing significant quantities of its grapes by foot. Appreciate breathtaking panoramas, along winding roads.

Stop at a local “quinta” (wine producing estate) to learn about port-wine producing methods and enjoy a wine tasting.
