Alijó, natureza e vinho
The village of Alijó is located in the North of Portugal and is part of the Douro International Nature Park, a World Heritage Site. Its highlands are crossed by different rivers and the landscape is marked by terraces where vines are planted.
By staying in Alijó, you can discover the unique natural heritage of this region. Start your day with a short walk through the village. Visit the Mother Church and see the century-old Sycamore next to it.
Save a few hours in the morning for a sporting activity. There are several possibilities, from hiking trails to mountain biking, boat, canoe and off-road circuits, among others.
You can also go to the Passadouro River Beach. This natural swimming pool of the River Pinhão is surrounded by lush vegetation. Then, go to the village of Pinhão. The Train Station, with its tile panels, is magnificent. There are tourist trains that depart from here, but taking one will takes up half a day, if not your entire day.
On you way back to Alijó, visit the Favaios Wine cellar. Here, you can see how the famous Moscatel do Douro is made, a fortified wine with national and international distribution.
