Peso da Regua

Peso da Régua is the official centre of Port production in Portugal. The town lies in a peaceful spot beneath the Serra do Maoro Mountains and was traditionally the place where barrels of Port were loaded onto wooden cargo ships to be transported along the Douro to Vila Nova de Gaia. The stained-glass windows of the Casa do Douro depict the history and production of Port wine. There is also a fine map of the Douro Valley drawn in the mid-19th century by Baron Joseph Forrester, an enterprising Englishman who reformed the port trade after joining his uncle's wine company in Oporto.

“Fabulous holiday overall. However overshadowed on day 12 and day 13 by unnecessary stopover in Madrid which involved complicated lengthy coach and train journeys which were not in original itinerary and were just too tiring. For example we arrived so late in Madrid that dinner was started at 10pm. An overnight sleeper train would have been much more suitable even if we wouldn't have had a personal bathroom on board. All the hotels were very good apart from the Porto Bay Hotel in Porto. It had recently been refurbished to a not good enough design or standard in our room e.g light fitting fell out and access to toilet was via a wobbly sliding glass panel that was noisy every time! Not good if in a twin room as we were! Staff in all hotels were pleasant and polite. Food was good for us in all hotels. Our tour manager was friendly, helpful and clearly good at her job with plenty of experience too.
