23 Jun Stunning views in the Douro valley
When in the north of Portugal it’s absolutely worth visiting the valley of the Douro river. This is the areas where the grapes for Port wine as well as some other wines are growing. But it’s also the valley that gives you stunning views.
Driving from Porto into the valley and passing towns like Pinhão shows you the beauty of this area. You can visit some of the vineyards and wine houses, however to get some more insights into Port wine I would recommend visiting one of the port houses in Porto on the south bank of the river.
