Rail of Corgo – Alvacoes do Corgo

Santa Marta de Penaguião
Description
The Corgo Rail offers us a journey through the relationship between man and nature. Throughout the route you can admire the result of work that for centuries was shaping the hard rock ground and from it he could make to sprout wine. It impresses the almost unimaginable of that secular effort dimension when we appreciate the amazing landscape transformed into stripes that look like the contours of a map in which God is fully made efforts to create beauty and harmony between man and nature.
In the undulations of the spring green and autumnal gold, the steep slopes, among the swell of steep slopes, sneaks up Corgo, stealthy river, shy and almost ashamed of its immense beauty. In the narrow riverbanks here and there larger and carpeted with green grass, the shade of the alder, ash trees and willows invites for a siesta on hot days.
Of the highest points it is glimpsed the infinite, where are lost the peaks and distant lands. In some of these points rise up chapels to witness the miracle of transmutation of the landscape. But they also offer views of delight for the nearby and distant villages, mainly for Peso da Régua, there on the banks of the Douro. This path leads to one of them. From there we can have a hemispheric vision and it is seen the housing to score from white the green landscape.
The houses profile on the slopes defying the gravity and are generally white coloured. The narrow streets invite to the whisper of the soul, but the people are cheerful, communicative and very friendly. "Land of good people and abundant land," said one of its inhabitants. And he said the truth.
