... 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
