Viewpoint São Leonardo da Galafura.
A “geological poem. Absolute beauty”. This is how the Portuguese writer, Miguel Torga, described the Alto Douro Vinhateiro. Located in Canelas, just 25 minutes from the center of Peso da Régua, the São Leonardo da Galafura viewpoint is one of those places with the most privileged view of this poem that is the Douro Valley.
Being one of the most popular places in the region, it is therefore a mandatory stop to enjoy the panoramic view and take some of the most incredible photos of the region.
Viewpoint of the Imaginary
This viewpoint, located in Mesão Frio, is an amphitheater facing the Douro River! With about 145 meters of altitude, this is the ideal place for all photography lovers.
A mix between the river and the terraces typical of the region's landscape and a mandatory stop for those who are visiting.
