Douro Heritage Hike
Written By Admin
Walk from the picturesque train station of Pinhão, and its blue tiles, to one of the best viewpoints of the Douro Region. You will enjoy this Walk who traverse the vineyards of this UNESCO world heritage site
The day starts at the Campanhã train Station at Porto, where we take the train to Pinhão. The journey will take a little more than 2h, time to look to the best train ride in Portugal. For most of this train ride you will follow the river Douro and its marvellous scenery.
Once in Pinhão, we will prepare for the hike, and start as soon we can. Up the hill we go, to find one of the best views in the UNESCO world heritage site. For lunch time we will stop at the Casal de Loivos viewpoint. From here we will wander through vineyards, following old ways, in some cases no longer used to get to the vines. Once back to the valley floor we walk the shores of the river Pinhão to arrive to the mighty Douro, and back to Pinhão.
With some time in our hands, we can refresh ourselves and take some time watching the blue tiles of the train station while waiting for the train to return to Porto.
