Here the slopes are monumental and the wine culture is present at every moment. The day ends at Pinhão where you rest in an old wine farm which awaits you with a welcome drink.

Those are carved by rivers with kilometers of pure water running down to you. When you are back in Pinhão it will be time to take a boat trip to discover other places along the shores of the Douro. This is a UNESCO world heritage site and you will understand why!
