Now that I have your attention let me explain why I had to do it. Many times I have made this road and always had to stop several times because I just could not resist taking some pictures to the amazing landscape that Douro has to offer us in this small track. Along with this couple of kms the road goes right up with the Douro River. So close that you can stop and just by walking some steps easily touch the water. Wonderful view, low traffic and all the aromas in the air makes this a unique moment. I just cannot resist. I always take a lot of time going from Régua to Pinhão.
But this is only part of the journey.
Quinta de Marrocos, Quinta do Tedo, Quinta do Pôpa, Quinta do Pégo, Quinta das Carvalhas or even, if you are into to food too, the Restaurant DOC from the Chef Rui Paula among many other producers and local gastronomy. What else can you ask for?
