  Douro landscape
by micas_pt

Favorite thing: As I mentioned on the previous tip, Vila Real is a great base to explore the Douro region. River Douro and its margins, covered in vineyards are one of the most beautiful landscapes in Portugal. And the grapes and harvest are a tradition for decades.

Vinho do Porto (Porto sweet wine) is renowned all over the world and it is produced on these breathtaking slopes that border the River.

There is part of the Douro landscape that is classified by Unesco as World Heritage site.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
