The Douro Valley - Portugal

N.º 2 The Landscape

Encouraged by the daring outlines that Nature gave to the Douro Valley, the countryside people worked hard in the gigantic labor of shaping the schist terraces. They prepared the land, handled the vineyards and in every autumn, the harvest time. So it happened for centuries, keeping perfect and unique the landscape that embraces the river.
Enjoy the overwhelming beauty of the Douro sceneries in a panoramic minibus tour or in a private van with a tour guide.
If you prefer an approach along the riverside, you may choose a journey in the historic train with departure in Régua. The trip will surprise you with never-ending opportunities to take stunning pictures of the region, a World Heritage Site.
