We toured Avelada Vineyard and thoroughly enjoyed the estate, the history and the friendly tour-guide, Renata. This estate has been producing wines for more than 300 years and now produce their own cheeses. At the end of the tour we sampled several of the white wines including a very nice reserve, along with their cheeses.
This is a "must visit" if you go to the Douro River valley. The scenery and Gardens are picturesque and on a sunny day, this visit will certainly please everyone.
Shopping in their store afterward is a treat as their prices on their wines, cheeses and ports are very reasonable as well.

The surrounding garden is interesting and the views of the city are very good. But I didn't like the building, it's romantic architecture influenced by successive later works didn't convince me. And I couldn't see inside, because it was closed.

The place was empty, no one was visiting. But as soon as I entered the building I felt this was a different one. Not only because of the Exhibitions, but specially because of the building. Soon I realize it was drawn by an architect, a good one, Fernando Távora (Álvaro Siza was his intern)! The exhibition project is also very good, and it has really good pieces in the museum (5 rooms: identity, territory, archeology, trades, earth and water), it's definitely worth the visit. And it's only 2€

Great fun for the kids for a complete day. the kids can go in a lot of fun rides. they have also a small swiming pool to relax.the only problem is that the park get crowded and you can´t enjoy it so much, too many people... they need to improve on puting more atractions or a limit on the people getting in.

It's quiet and green. Just the perfect spot to chill out and read a book, or hold hands with your loved one :)

優れた高速力を持ち、その外見から「銀河系最速のガラクタ」と呼ばれたハン・ソロの宇宙船Milleniium Falconはエピソード７「フォースの覚醒」で埃に埋もれて姿を現すのですが、これが上空から見るとPenafiel(ぺナフィエル)のMonte Mozinho山頂にある「Cidade Morta(死んだ町)」とそっくりだと言われています。
Castro de Monte Mozinhoが最初に発掘されたのは1943年です。再発掘は1974年に再会され現在に至ります。随分長いこと放置されたのは、国にお金がなかったのか、古代遺跡発掘に興味がなかったのか。

The Church of Boelhe, built between the mid and late 13th century, stands out for being one of the most accomplished decorative expressions of the rural Romanesque style. In the north facade, the corbels show a significant variety of motifs, from bull heads to men carrying stones. This church is part of the Route of the Romanesque.
This is a small church from the 12th century or early time of the Monarchy, it has a Romanesque architecture, and is usually attributed to its construction to the queen Mafalda de Saboia, wife of D. Afonso Henriques. In the beginning, the Abbey of Boelhe was owned by the monks of Vila Boa do Bispo, they got this right of presentation of said Abbey.

The Memorial of Ermida is a type of monument of which there are only six examples left in the entire Portugal. These monuments are associated either with burial places, or with the evocation of someone's memory, or even with the passage of funeral processions. Legend has it that this was one of the stops of the procession that carried the body of D. Mafalda - the granddaughter of king D. Afonso Henriques - to the monastery of Arouca. This Memorial is part of the Route of the Romanesque.
