In the heart of Portugal's wine country in the lush Douro River valley is the small town of Regua (officially Peso de Regua), with a population just under 20,000. Visiting here on your Douro River cruise, you will have the opportunity to explore local attractions like picturesque Lamego, where you can see the shrine of Nossa Senhora dos Remédios with its 700 steps and ornate tiles. There is also a Gothic cathedral, a Wine Museum, and charming cafés to relax in the Portuguese sun. Another popular nearby destination is Figueira de Castelo Rodrigo, a small fortified village perched high on a hilltop with centuries-old walls, steep narrow streets, and fantastic views. Cruises visiting Regua typically depart from coastal Porto and may travel as far inland as Salamanca, Spain. Let us know when you're ready to start planning your Douro River cruise.
