A quintessential Douro Valley town

ROL Cruise recommends…

A gateway to Portugal or Western Spain

Vega de Terron is the last port of the Douro on the course that borders Portugal. From here, the river heads north towards Pocinho and the border between Spain heads south, with this charming and friendly town at its apex. Visits to Vega de Terron on a river cruise will often use the town as a base to explore its attractions in the wider area. However, before you head further afield, we certainly recommend taking a small amount of time to explore the little town itself, perhaps sampling a glass of port in the sunshine down a quiet street.

Figueira de Castelo Rodrigo

This small village sits atop a hill over the Portuguese border. The village’s defensive walls hint at its history, with the two countries disputing over ownership of this settlement since the 13th Century. Many of the ancient border walls still stand but many hold reminders of previous battle scars. Luckily, the village is perfectly peaceful today, and from within the fortifications, you will find walkways past pretty houses and beautiful views of the surrounding area.

Visit the ancient university city

A visit to Vega de Terron isn’t complete without heading to the nearby city of Salamanca for a couple of hours of exploration. Of course, your Vega de Terron river cruise may stop off in Salamanca on its course, but if not, we certainly recommend organising a trip. Much of the city is crafted from golden sandstone and terracotta tiles which of course is perfected by the gleaming Spanish sun, it’s easy to see how the nickname La Dorada came to be!

Douro International Natural Park

Spanning a lengthy stretch of the Douro River, you will find one of Portugal’s thirteen natural parks. The park was specially created to protect the scenic landscape of the local area as well as its indigenous flora and fauna, some of which is classed as endangered. If you visit Vega de Terron during February and March, the park will be a spectacle of colour and scent, as the almond trees will be in full bloom.
