Pinhao is one of 19 parishes located in the Alijo municipality in the Norte Region of Portugal. It is situated at the confluence of the Douro and Pinhao rivers, 22km upstream from Peso da Regua.
Marking the end of the “port wine trail,” Pinhao is a typical rustic Douro town. Of interest is the Azulejos [glazed tile] decorated railway station. From here, one can see the dramatic landscaped vine-clad terraces, dotted with white quintas where the wine is produced and bottled.
