The rustic grandeur of Portugal once formed a mighty seafaring kingdom that conquered and helped to colonise the known world, from America to the Far East. Today, some of that grandeur is still evident in the fine palaces and splendid manors that litter the fertile landscape. However, there's also a humility and pastoral simplicity that belies the magnificence of days past. From their welcoming salt-of-the-earth demeaner to their relaxed love of the good life, fine wine and fresh food, it's the people that make this land so memorable and charming. As you make leisurely progress down the Douro, you'll soon become accustomed to the pace of local life, and visiting the charming villages and stunning cities that neighbour the river's banks turns into a never-ending pleasure.
