The people of the Douro need nothing more than the Douro to live and to be happy. As guardians of this beautiful land, they are happy to share it with visitors and they will make your experience worthwhile – one experience you will never forget.
During the Middle Ages, Santiago was the most ancient, popular and renowned city of the North-Western peninsula. The Romans used to call this place “Finisterra” due to its capacity to inspire a single path, road and route in these remote areas.
Demarcated in 1756, the Douro is one of the world’s oldest wine regions and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of the human influence on its development. More than 2,000 years of winemaking have shaped it into a terraced, vine-covered, wine-producing destination.
