Douro Tours and Activities

The Douro region in Northeast Portugal is near the border with Spain. Even with the advent of modern civilization, this area is characterized by a sort of frontier spirit that tenaciously preserves a traditional way of life handed down through many, many years.

Thinly populated and remote, the Douro is not unlike Galicia in Spain in that its people speak a dialect that is markedly different than the rest of the country; in the Douro, it is closer to Latin vulgate than Portuguese. Along with speaking a traditional language, pottery and weaving are still important cottage industries. Long-held folk practices include a dance with wooden staves called the Dance of the Pauliteiros, which takes place on the third Sunday of August, during the Feast of Saint Barbara. Curiously, this dance is less related to Saint Barbara than it is to Roman martial pomp – the Dance of the Pauliteiros is an outgrowth of the old Roman sword dances.

Notable ruins in the town of Miranda do Douro include the watchtower of the Miranda do Douro castle and the Baroque courtyard left behind from the long-since-destroyed Archbishop’s palace. The city’s cathedral is also of interest; it features a magnificent marble high altar as well as a 19th century ex-voto centered around a piece called “Infant Jesus in a Top Hat.”

Douro Tour

Douro Tour

In the northeast of Portugal, along the Douro Valley – World Heritage (border with Spain), we find the Mirandese plateau with an altitude that varies between 700 and 900 meters. It was one of the most isolated regions of Portugal, which is why the second official language of the country is spoken here: mirandês. To this region, belongs the Douro International Natural Park, with its magnificent landscapes of the cliffs over Douro river, and an abundant wildlife. The small villages, the heritage, the populations and the gastronomy complete the scenery. Excellent place for bird watching, mainly preys, and long walks in nature.
