Banks of Gaia

Cross the bridge and enjoy the view !

To appreciate even more the district of Ribeira and Miragaia and one of the finest estuaries in the world, cross the bridge Luis Ist to reach Vila Nova de Gaia.

 

On the banks of Gaia you will be amazed by the view and …frustrated at not being able to photograph the whole panorama ; don’t despair – as we will see when we take you to the wine lodges - that you can capture the intensity of the whole vista by climbing a little up the streets of Gaia.

 

This is a good opportunity to take a cruise on the Douro River, take a ride by cable car, and especially to discover the history of Port wine.
