This elegant manor house may be familiar, as it appears on the labels of the famous Mateus rosé wine. We re-join the ship in Pinhão, and as we set sail for Vega de Teron, perhaps head out on deck to admire the steep, terraced vineyards lining the banks of the river.
Today you can explore Salamanca on an optional excursion, depart by coach and then enjoy a tour on foot.

On board the ship tonight, get together with your travelling companions to enjoy a gala evening.
This morning we sail to the tiny town of Ferradosa. It’s all about wine here, so let’s step ashore and taste some on an optional excursion. We’ll return to the ship and then relax on board as we cruise back to Oporto. This evening enjoy a farewell dinner on board followed by traditional entertainment.
