Douro Historical Train

The Douro historical train runs between June and October.

Riding on the historical train is like travelling back in time. The route runs along the bank of the river Douro, with the five historical carriages being hauled by Steam Engine 0186, which was built in 1925 by Henschel & Son and that run between Régua and Tua, on a unique trip back into the past through beautiful landscape that is classified by UNESCO as World Heritage.
