The Douro Valley is known for having several enchanting belvederes that offer beautiful views of the Douro River and its slopes. One of the most fantastic and tourist sights is Casal de Loivos belvedere. Located in the village of Casal de Loivos, at the top of a hillside above the charming village of Pinhão, here the visitor has the opportunity to admire one of the most beautiful landscapes of the Douro Valley. It is often said that the landscape seen from Casal de Loivos belvedere is the best “tourist postcard” that one can have of the Douro Valley. As we approach to its enormous balcony, our senses are inebriated with the aromas, the calm, the sounds and the landscape of the Douro River and its slopes, full of vineyards and olive trees, arranged on terraces.
