Douro Paraíso Tour

"The sublimated Doiro. The prodigy of a landscape that ceases to be by the force of being unmeasured."
Miguel Torga

Description of the Tour

Get to know one of the best representations of Baroque architecture in Portugal: the Mateus Palace, in Vila Real. Visiting this monument is making a trip to the past, either through the main house, or walking around the beautiful gardens, discovering the Cellar or the Chapel.

Still on this tour, you can feel the immense Douro from the viewpoint of S. Leonardo de Galafura, whose beauty was immortalized by the transmontano / duriense poet Miguel Torga in his Diaries.

The trip from Peso da Régua to Pinhão, along National Highway 222, is of unparalleled beauty until the end. There are 27 kilometers that cross the Demarcated Region always in the company of Douro River. It has been considered the world’s best to drive and the most romantic road.
