Showing the great contrast between the bustle of the sea port and the slow, traditional way of life upriver. The surrounding region east of Porto remains medieval until today.

Since 1756 the Douro Valley was established as a wine region for the production of Port Wine, which means that the majority wineries are astounding 18th-century heritage buildings. With us you are going to explore this open air museum!
