The colorful saga continues, but this time I’ll start with a slightly wider view. The first three images are from Quinta da Ervamoira – Ramos Pinto where the grapes for one of Portugal’s top Port Wines grow.
The landscape hills and valleys with its colored leaves make a beautiful sight to chill-out in the company of a fine wine.
But the Douro region is not all about vineyards. A chat or two with the local people can also make your day happier. This nice lady was trying to sell us dry figs. With all her sympathy she eventually managed to empty her bag a little bit.
Besides the internationally acclaimed wines, what made this region famous was the Paleolithic Art in Foz Côa. The following engraved figures of horses, bovines and other animals were drawn around 18000 years ago!
Standing near Côa river by night enjoying the drawings can be a great experience for your mind as it can wander some good thousands years back and imagine life at those times.
