THE REGION

Miranda do Douro is a Natural Paradise in the Portuguese northeast region.

Here it is possible to find a little of everything:
Local and Portuguese popular Music and tradition, dances, gastronomy, exhibitions, handcraft, musical groups, "gaiteiros", "pauliteiros" street animation, and the "mirandês", a language spoken by native communities of the Planalto Mirandês region, recognized as official portuguese language on January 1999.

The festivities and pilgrimages of Miranda do Douro, are also a convergence between the tradition and modernity. Tradition for the value we aknoledge to the past and the defense of the patrimony, a treasure deserving to be known and lived.

What to visit:
- The city gate, in the walls of the old castle.
- The aqueduct of Vilarinho, dated of 16th century, which supplied with water Miranda do Douro until the 20th century.
- The castle of Miranda do Douro, built by order of portuguese king D. Dinis, in 13th century. In ruins, after the blowing of the shell-room in 1762, and never rebuild.
- The Cathedral, of 16th century.
- The Douro river, a unique landscape.
