Peso da Regua Museum/Gallery Fodor's Choice

This stunning museum sits at the center of the Douro Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, underscoring its importance in terms of cultural history and tourism. Housed in the imposing former headquarters of a port-wine company, the institution also has a striking contemporary wing that hosts major exhibitions about the wine-making region, its history, and leading figures connected with it. Those with an appetite can stay for a meal at the riverside restaurant and wine bar overlooking the Douro. The ticket price includes a complimentary glass of port wine.
