Acknowledged as one of the world's best wines, Port wine is produced in the Douro region, the first selected Wine Region of the world, created by the Marquis of Pombal in 1756. The fine farms laid out along the river, which today make for one of the strongest images of the region, began to emerge in the seventeenth century, due to the growing expansion of the Port Wine, which was then as now very popular in England. This route also covers the Douro Region in which they produce table wines of high quality. By car, train or boat, the Port Wine Route offers unique perspectives on the three routes it proposes. "Through Baixo Corgo" is a track of a green landscape leading to some of the most famous farms in the region, as well as to beautiful towns as Mesão Frio, Peso da Régua and Vila Real. "In the Cima Corgo", a route where the shale occasionally interrupts the green landscape, the visitor meets a the most impressive view over the Douro, in the Miradouro de São Salvador do Mundo. In the course "Discovering the Douro Superior", the vineyard is less frequent but then we find another striking view, which is the almond blossom in early spring.
