The Duoro Valley – Part 5

From Nightjar,

This is the last set of photos and it shows the olive plantations that are also an important part of the landscape, some wine cellars, and the Pinhão river, a Douro tributary. I hope you enjoyed this series. The Douro Valley is a magical place with a long tradition of wine and olive oil production. Its sustainability is currently threatened by an increase in intensive farming and tourism. In a way, it’s being a victim of its own beauty and of the quality of its products.

    I’ve really enjoyed this series. Your photos are gorgeous and it looks like a wonderful journey. If I ever get a chance to travel again, the Douro valley is a place is like to see in person. Thanks for sharing.

    Thank you, voyager. I wish I could have been more present but in addition to everything else, my laptop decided to die on me last week. I’m still getting everything set up. But thank you and everyone who followed this series, and maybe there will be flowers again next week. Stay safe.

    I would love to walk among those olive trees once. I never will, but I would love to. Thanks you for the pictures.
