Museu do Douro - Territory Museum

The Museu do Douro (Douro Museum) as a territory museum has for its mission to represent the natural and cultural heritage of the Douro Demarcated Region, declared as a World Heritage site by UNESCO. It’s both a collective space of the wine region’s memory and identity, in a constant dialogue with the present, and at the same time, an appreciation tool of the activities associated with wine growing, cultural tourism and wine tourism.

BOEIRA Portugal in a bottle

Quinta da Boeira has 3 hectares of hundred-year-old gardens at whose centre stands an early-20th-century stately home.

Over the years, the events area has been adapted to suit the changing needs of social and business events. A restaurant was established within the main building, a glazed hall with room for over 200 guests was built in the former stables, an exhibition and events hall for over 300 people was created within the former port wine warehouse, and, most recently, a tasting room for Portuguese wines – the Biggest Bottle (Garrafa) in the world.
