Pinhao is considered to be the geographical centre of the Douro demarcated wine region, and it is here that many of the Port wine estates are to be found, some of which offer accommodation under the system of rural tourism. 

Encircled by terraced hillsides that produce some of the world’s best port – and some stellar table wines, too – pretty little Pinhao sits on a particularly lovely bend of the Rio Douro, about 25km upriver from Peso da Régua. Wineries and their competing signs dominate the scene. Even the delightful train station has azulejos (hand-painted tiles) depicting the grape harvest. The town itself, cute though it is, holds little of interest, but does makes a fine base for exploring the many surrounding vineyards.

Begin your visit with a Pinhao River Cruise, and made your way out on the Douro River in a modern boat.  Sail along slowly down the river, admiring the views that surround you on both sides.  Enjoy the gorgeous green hills, covered with vines and a rustic country house here and there. You will also discover its famous bridge, designed by renowned architect Gustave Eiffel. It's definitely a wonderful experience and it's also a relaxing way to enjoy a great view and take some beautiful pictures.
