Discover the Douro Valley, a region that is bathed by the Douro River and is part of the so-called Douro Wine Region. Located in the North of Portugal and a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2001, it is the oldest demarcated wine region in the world (1756) and where the famous Port and Douro wines are produced.
The Douro Valley could easily be called the enchanted valley, such is the beauty and magic that radiates from its landscapes. Terraced vineyards that go up and down the hills on either side of the river are responsible for the breathtaking landscape of the region. Portugal is a country full of natural beauty, but the Douro Valley is considered one of the country's “crown jewels”.
