Vila Real Off The Beaten Path: 10 reviews and 16 photos
Régua is a pleasant town to visit, bathed by River Douro. The history, development and customs of this town are marked for centuries by the trading and producing of Porto sweet wine and Douro wines. It has some nice architecture to see, but mainly the wine related customs are the highlight of this town, on my opinion.
It is also a good starting point to explore the Douro vineyard region, which is classified by Unesco as protected landscape. Don't miss the rabelo boat, a typical wooden boat associated with the transportation of the wine.
Régua is situated about 20km from Vila Real.
