Miradouro de São Leonardo de Galafura is the highest point of the entire Douro Valley. On a clear day the horizon can be seen up to 30 kilometres in all directions. Besides this massive granite protruding mountain, what i enjoy most about it is the peace and tranquillity of it. There is only a little chapel in honour of Saint São Leonardo de Galafura and a small picnic area. Not café, no bathrooms, no one trying to sell you something...Its just about you, the view and the nature where you are immersed.
