  Port Map

The last Portuguese village along Douro river, Barca d'Alva is less than 2 km from the Spanish border. Barca d'Alva is overlooked by mountains on all sides, and on a calm bend in Rio Douro. It is a curious spot with a row of elderly cottages and a long-abandoned railway line; and on the other hand, a sparkling quayside with very big pontoons to accommodate Douro cruisers which disgorge guests for a fast souvenir hunt.Barca d'Alva (Portugal) river cruise port

Barca d'Alva features a few cafés and other places that soak up any passing trade. In the end it is the drive here, from north or south, that warrants the trip, through amazingly sculpted Douro terraces of vines and olives, with sweeping views across the hills. As there is no road along Douro in its latter stages after Pocinho, travelers have to approach via Foz Côa and Figueira de Castelo Rodrigo (in Beira Alta) or Torre de Moncorvo and Freixo de Espada à Cinta (in Trás-os-Montes).
