Wander around Museu do Douro
The Museu do Douro was an idea bought to life in 1997 with the intention of gathering, conserving and identifying Portugal and Régua’s scattered heritage. A walk around the building will uncover objects and collections from the Douro’s long past, giving you an insight into the past and present happenings of the town. From Medieval history to famous faces of past and present, the museum offers it all.
Take the train from Régua and explore the hidden towns and villages along the Douro for an unspoilt view of Portugal’s stunning scenery. Sit back and relax as the train weaves you through the hills and along the river, the perfect window seat experience for those looking to uncover more than one location.
Explore the riverfront
Take a wander along the riverfront and uncover small, independent shops and restaurants alongside unspoilt views across the water onto the hills beyond. Sip on a glass of local Port wine before enjoying a typical Portuguese meal as the sun sets over the river. Dip in and out of local boutiques and pick up a souvenir or two to remember your time in the heart of Portugal.
Explore from a new perspective
A visit to Régua gives visitors the perfect opportunity to see the stunning scenery from the waters. Hire a small boat or find one of the local sightseeing boats and jump on board for a de-brief of the towns water-rich history. Relax as you sail lazily down the calm waters of the Douro before stopping off on the waters edge for a bite or two to eat and of course a glass of Port.
