Description

The experience in Foz Côa begins with the famous rock engravings. This visit is carried out with the accompaniment of a local tourist guide that takes us to the places where our ancestors left the testimony of their existence during the Paleolithic superior (between 22,000 and 10,000 years ago).

It is the largest set of outdoor engravings in the world, classified as World Heritage by Unesco in 1998. The lunch break takes place in the Côa Museum restaurant, with dishes and wines typical of the region and with evidence of other local products .

Besides the refinement of the meal, we can also delight ourselves with the landscape that surrounds us. After lunch, a guided tour of the Museum takes place, where we learn a little more about the prehistoric societies that inhabited the region and left their mark here.

Finally, on the way back to Porto, we went to more inland and less explored paths, passing through villages and key villages in the Douro region. The highlight of the tour is National 222, considered the best road in the world. After a brief stop in Régua, we return to Porto.
