Discover the Douro Region

A late evening in the Quina do Vallado hotel, Douro region, Portugal.



A story behind: The Douro region  located in the Northern part of Portugal is a must-see.  The contrasts of a landscape where majestic mountains, fertile plains, streams and the rivers, give shape to a charming natural space that invites us to appreciate it will leave no one indifferent. The winegrowing culture with a special emphasis on the production of Port wine is still to be discovered.
We spent a couple of last days at the Quinta do Vallado hotel tasting their great reds.
For more impressions from the Douro and Porto region please read a recent article in NYT.
