About Bitetos

Bitetos is a tiny port nestled in the Douro River valley. This former Roman village exhibits its ancient origins in ruins and in the older areas of town where antiquated architecture still stands. Its most popular tourist attraction is the 11th-century Benedictine Monastery of Alpendurada, which allows visitors on a limited basis and doubles as a restaurant. Viking River Cruises guests spend an evening there enjoying the cuisine and port wines and exploring the monastery’s furnishings and exhibits.
