Inspired by earth
“If there’s a region endowed with a powerful image, that region is the Douro. It fascinates us at every turn of the river, at each bend of the road.
Its vineyards shades, the harmony of its architectural clusters, its overwhelming schist and the omnipresent river melt into a unique whole, in a tangible postcard we are never tired of contemplating.
A masterpiece created by both Nature and Man, the striking, intriguing Douro has inspired poets, writers and artists who have portrayed it in its most genuine, diverse features.
It is the Douro of high colours, of intense aromas, of centuries-old history. Of Heritage.”
Amândio Jorge Morais Barros, historian
