Follow the fairly level path along the mountain ridge above the Pinhão Valley for outstanding views of the surrounding villages and terraced hillsides.
At the end of the ridge, you’ll circle the hilltop at Casal de Loivos in order to witness the splendor of the Douro landscape from various perspectives including a famous miradouro. Here you will visit an olive oil museum and have an olive oil tasting.
Wend your way downhill through the vineyards and past quintas all the way to Croft’s Quinta da Roeda.
At the end of the walk, learn about the influential Symington family and their wines at Quinta do Bomfim and celebrate an enjoyable day’s hike with a port wine tasting session with enviable views of the river.
