In Lamego, we will embark on a guided tour of discovery. Although Port wine gets all the attention in the Douro River Valley, there are a lot of other really fascinating treasures along the way. Like the Shrine of Our Lady of Remedies in Lamego. This twin-towered, 18th-century church has a trim, blue-and-white stucco interior with a sky-blue rococo ceiling and gilded altar. The cathedral stands out with its nine flights of stairs, 686 steps, and terraces adorned with chapels, statues, fountains, and obelisks. Lamego really stands out as a culturally-rich area in Portugal, serving as a center of art, architecture, and history. After the tour, we'll board the ship in Régua and spend the afternoon sailing to Porto. Tonight, we'll enjoy a traditional folklore-themed evening.
