This South Douro Route, contains places of great religiosity (Senhora da Lapa Sanctuary), fortifications, linked to the Foundation of Portugal (Castle of Penedono) and superb views of the Douro (São Salvador do Mundo Viewpoint).

  • The Sanctuary of Nossa Senhora da Lapa and the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia, were in the past the two most important sanctuaries of the Iberian Peninsula.

  • The primitive fortification of Penedono is only referred to around the year 930, when, in the context of the Christian Reconquest of the Iberian Peninsula, this region was first time the reconquered to the Muslims, by the King of León.

  • The panoramic perspective sighted from the top of the sanctuary of São Salvador do Mundo, about the deep gorge of the Douro Valley, is unforgettable.
