Highlights of Pinhão
The small town of Pinhão makes for a fun and relaxing day on your Douro River cruise of Portugal. With a combination of easy active and relaxed activities, you'll enjoy your time getting to know this quiet area, especially if you are in search of the perfect wine!
The best thing to do while in Pinhão is try a wine-tasting. Right where the Douro meets the Pinhão, you'll find yourself in the savory heart of wine country, famous for their signature Port wines, and there's nowhere else in the world where you'll sample a fresher Port!
For fans of architecture, the railway station is a great stop too, with its distinct azulejo ceramic tiles.
You can also visit the birthplace of famed explorer Ferdinand Magellan in Sabrosa, not far from Pinhão.
Your stop in Pinhão will be bookended by days in Porto, Regua, Salamanca, Barca D'Alva, and other smaller port towns throughout Portugal and Spain along the River Douro.
