Porto and the Douro Basin

The Douro river comes into Portugal from Spain and flows across the country to enter the sea at Porto.

The main areas of tourist interest are Porto (Oporto) for the Port Wine producing lodges on the south bank of the river and the grape growing area of the Douro river.

Many of the grape growing Quintas are on the slopes of the Douro valley looking down onto the river. Nowadays the Quintas are allowed to blend their production with brandy to make their own label Port Wine.

The riverside area of Porto has been recognised by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site as has been the Port Wine Production area and also the pre-historic drawings at Foz Coa on the upper reaches of the river

The north of the region is part of the Vinho Verde production area and also has the city of Guimaraes which once was the capital of Portugal.

Braga is another important town with many churches and is known as the religious capital of the country.
