Doorsteps were fundamental in the past in Douro villages.

They lost part of their functional side today. However, the entrances remain. In some of them, no one enters for a long, long time.

The emptiness of these spaces contrasts with the fullfilment seen in our fields.

Douro villages need more people. A stonger humanization of our territory would certainly bring many positive effects.

Dourowalks will be pleased to introduce you to these places. Places that portay the history of the village, the history of Douro and Portugal.
