After the Conference

What follows is not included in the EPIA-2019 Social Program, but can help you programing an excellent weekend after the conference. Here follows some suggestions of places and facilities you can easily visit from Vila Real. 

Peso da Régua

Peso da Régua ( also known as Régua ) is located at approximately 27 Km from Vila Real. Vila real and Régua are connected by a highway. Régua, just nearby the Douro river, is in the in the heart of the Douro Valley.  It has a wonderful natural scenery combining the river surrounded by vineyards. Régua has a long tradition of O’Porto wine trading, and not so long ago the wine was transported from Régua to O’Porto (Gaia Cellars) in traditional boats known as Rabelos.

In Régua you can visit the Douro Museum, a 18th century mansion where besides the wine-production history, there are art exhibitions.

From Régua it is also possible to take a Douro tour (or cruise) by boat, or travel by train (e.g. to O’Porto and Pinhão).  

São Leonardo de Galafura

In between Vila Real and Régua ( about 21 Km from Vila Real) you can enjoy one of the most beautiful views from the Douro valley. It is located at about 640m high near a small chapel with excellent viewpoints for both the Douro River and vineyards. You can also enjoy a nice meal in a restaurant 100m from the viewpoint.

Lamego

Lamego is a city located about 42Km from Vila Real ( you can follow the same highway connecting Vila Real and Régua). The history of Lamego goes back far before Portugal was a country, so there is plenty to visit such as a Cathedral and a beautiful sanctuary ( Nossa Senhora dos Remédios ).
