Douro Valley – from the Cabrum to the Arda Mouth - Cinfães and Castelo de Paiva

The Magical Douro itinerary offers you an exciting journey to meet unique places in the stunning Douro Valley. Find out where four of the most important rivers running across the territory of Montanhas Mágicas® - the Paiva, Bestança, Arda and Cabrum – flow into and enjoy unique landscapes, such as the one provided by the only existing island on the national Douro River section. On a trip back to the Middle Ages, discover treasures of art and romanesque architecture. Go up to the Catapeixe, S. Domingos and S. Gens viewpoints and see the magnificent Douro Valley as you have never seen before. Admire the beautiful waterfall of the Sampaio River and take time to visit the monumental Carrapatelo dam where, from its deep galleries, you can see the river bottom. Discover traces of the “old” Douro in Areal de Espadanedo; relax in nice riverside areas of recreation and leisure and visit ancient river ports, once stopping points of the Rabelo boats. Be sure to go through the streets of the typical schist villages, “Douro watchers”, and to discover some of the most important Montanhas Mágicas® geosites, examples of which are the Carboniferous fossils and Mines of Pejão. If you have the chance, visit the churches and chapels that we suggest and take a few moments of your time to simply contemplate and meditate.
