Porto Portugal gay bears cruise

 

From its source in Spain, the Douro river flows across Portugal from east to west and ends in the Atlantic at Porto. Wine has been cultivated here intensively for centuries. In former times, mariners would transport the barrels on boats all the way to the port wine cellars. Picturesque vineyards adorn the river banks. Along the river are enchantingly beautiful medieval towns boasting wonderful architecture. This region historically attracted Romans, pilgrims and nobles, all of whom created idyllic beauty spots here.

And finally Porto, cradle of the glorious Portuguese fleet, with its mixture of traditional and modern architecture. Without a doubt, this impressive tour has a special charm promising a river cruise for all the senses.

In the medieval Ribeira (riverside) district, narrow cobbled streets wind past merchants’ houses and cafes. São Francisco Church is known for its lavish baroque interior with ornate gilded carvings.

Situated on the banks of the River Douro, Peso da Régua played a fundamental role in the production and sale of Port wine, for it was from here that the barrels were transported in the special boats known as barcos rabelos to Vila Nova de Gaia, where the wine was left to age in the local wine lodges.
Nestled among the terraced slopes of the Douro valley port wine-growing region, and overlooked by an ornate shrine, the town of Lamego is elegant and infused with Baroque style.
