The Douro Valley - Portugal

N.º 5 Culture and Leisure

Such a resourceful region wouldn’t be complete without its cultural side that registers the history of the Douro Valley and shares the memories of the people that shaped this land and made it a World Heritage Site.
There are three main museums in the Douro Valley with a wide range of exhibitions – Museu do Douro, Museu de Lamego and Museu do Côa, the last one included in the Archaeological Park of the Côa Valley.
For the most adventurous there are 4×4 tours and canoeing, but also radical packages such as canyoning, rafting and slides…
If you wish to spend your day in a diversions park, there is a waterpark in the region with all kind of outdoor activities for both grown ups and children.
By night, you can enjoy a delightful dinner in the riverside or one of the events suggested by the cultural agenda.
