The Douro Valley



The Douro river cuts a narrow, winding gorge through this beautiful region of northern Portugal. Rolling hills, a tumble of precipitous terraces, port wine lodges and rural communities all combine to provide some of the most unspoilt and unusual scenery in Europe. The entire Douro Valley is listed as a World Heritage Site and is one of the oldest wine producing regions in the world. Recommended as a relaxing holiday destination, it makes an excellent twin-centre with Oporto which is easily reached by car, boat or train.
