Douro River Valley- just plain beautiful!
So we took the train up the Duoro River Valley to the town of Pinhao. It is not the end, but far enough for a day trip because today is our last day in Porto:-(. The Duoro River is about 200 KM long in Portugal, and extends even further in Spain. Our favorite Spanish wines come from La Rioja and Ribera del Duoro- now we know where that is!!! Anyway, Pinhao was cute as can be for such a small town. we had 2 1/2 hours there between trains, which actually was enough: we drank wine and took a boat trip!! Plus, half the greatness was the view from the train as we came up. Again, just beautiful!
