I wanted this tour to be an alternative Douro Valley, unveiling its most secret places. From a Baroque jewel to a small village older than the country.Without losing a walk along the quay of Pinhão, we'll come to know the main archaelogical sites of this region and the stunning vantage point and chapel which inspired novelist Miguel Torga. Without missing a wine tasting at a Estate, you'll try the delicious local cuisine, savouring spicy sausage and ham, rye or corn bread baked in firewood oven.

A steady balance between the opposing pulls of regional tradition and global design currents, that's what we are going to admire and understand in this fascinating full day tour.
