Auf den Bergen liegt noch Schnee
Pinhao is further down the Douro river, and we thought that with our 2 night stay in the valley that we should check a few things out, including this town - another of the main towns on the river. Its smaller, more serene, has fewer tourists and is much more picturesque. The railway station was decorated with some truly wonderful tiles. After a cooling drink at a local cafe (that we eventually left as a lluxury canal cruiser and luxury tourist bus arrived!), we drove high up for a spectacular view over the Douro Valley from Casal de Lovios.Read more
Next we boarded a bus for a trip for a trip to an estate where they grow grapes for Sandman's estate, but we made a brief photo stop at a charming rail station whose walls are decorated with tiles.
The scenery is just so beautiful. It has been a bit cold, so I think October may be the optimal time to visit, but we are both so thrilled we came.
