PR 3 - Douro`s Vine Terraces

Tabuaço
Description
This circuit provides an accurate portrait of the Tabuaço commune. Rivers, mountains and valleys are the core of a landscape, inevitable marked by the production of the well-know Port Wine in the various Quintas (wine-producing farm complexes) of the region, such as the one of Monte Travesso, which we may visit. Tabuaço is also characteristic by its traditional villages, some of them notable for their Hisory and monuments, as the wine-producing  village of Barcos.
Tabuaço village itself preserves an ancient part of a great architectural beauty, apart from an urban care, where delightful green spaces abound.
