Welcome to Peso da Régua

The town itself, set along a busy highway above the river, doesn’t have a lot of charm – most visitors stop in just long enough to get recommendations, maps and directions to nearby wineries – but it makes a convenient base to visit the port-wine country, cruise the Rio Douro and and take a scenic riverside train ride. Most tourists stick to the scenic riverfront, but the quaint old town one block uphill is an almost exclusively local scene, and well worth a wander.
