About Pinhão

Located in the epicenter of the port wine–making area, the sleepy town of Pinhão is situated between the Douro and Pinhão Rivers. The climate and growing conditions in the area are perfect for port grapes and the surrounding landscape, festooned with vineyards, guarantees a serene experience as you sail along the river. During the annual grape harvest in autumn, the village comes to life, attracting workers and wine enthusiasts from around Europe.

Spend a pleasant morning exploring the town; be sure to visit the railway station, built in 1937 and decorated with 24 spectacular scenes depicted in azulejos (Portugal’s distinctive blue and white tiles).
