Located at the meeting point of two rivers, Vila Real has become a busy commercial town based around the wine and port trade. Its main attraction is its fine 15th Century Gothic Cathedral that was originally a church belonging to the Order of Dominicans whose Monastery was completely destroyed in the 19th Century. The Igreja dos Clérigos is a church with an attractive Baroque facade and tiled interior. There is a splendid 16-arch example of a Roman bridge over the River Tâmega. It is from this town boat trips through the upper valley of the River Dão can be booked. A specialty food of the town is the "Touchinho do Céu" made with pumpkin filling.

Spectacularly located at the confluence of the Douro and Pinhão rivers, the small town of Pinhão is the epicenter of the Port winemaking area. Although a sleepy town for most of the year, Pinhão bursts into life in autumn during the annual grape harvest, attracting pickers from all over the country. Popular for its peaceful riverside location and surrounding scenery, Pinhão is a mecca for lovers of fine wine. Built on the site of an 18th century wine estate, the four-star Vintage House Hotel operates regular tastings and courses covering a wide range of aspects, such as the main types, how the wine is made and buying and storing. The railway line passes within view of some of the most famous Port vineyards. Croft’s Quinta da Roeda, Graham’s Quinta dos Malvedos and Cockburn’s Tua are all within sight of the train. Further along are two of the grandest of vineyard estates: Taylor’s Quinta de Vargellas and the Symingtons’ Quinta do Vesúvio, both of which have their own private railway stations.

Overlooked by one of Portugal's most important shrines, Lamego is an ancient episcopal city lying within the Upper Douro's demarcated Port wine area. Located in a fertile valley, it is a delightful Baroque town with a central square laid out as a public garden surrounded by elegant 17th-century buildings. Its most significant role in the country's history was as the site where, in 1143, the cortes met for the very first time to declare Afonso Henriques as Portugal's first king.
