This charming destination invites exploration of scenic wonders, traditional culture and wine adventures in the heart of the Douro.

Near Pocinho, you'll find one of Europe's most remarkable archaeological treasures— the Côa Valley Archaeological Park, home to ancient rock engravings that date back thousands of years. This UNESCO World Heritage Site offers a fascinating glimpse into the prehistoric past of the Douro region.
