... an international natural park with
several overlooks on the Portuguese side (maybe Spanish too) which I hit in the
morning before continuing on to the Alto Douro wine region. The Grand Canyon it
is not, but it’s an impressive gorge even if the river is now dammed at spots

Miranda do Douro is another one of those places where I

to the village of Masueca. This time we weren’t going to get lost as we just
retraced our route on the way back.
The country side is beautiful. Everywhere you look there are
broom bushes covered in creamy coloured flowers. The scent is lovely. Wild rosemary and lavender are also in full
bloom. On the steep terraced slopes grow vines and olive trees.
