Looking across the Douro in the evening, I watched the night descend and saw a magical sight. The entire area was lit up and looked like a fantasy light display. It could have been Disney World or a Christmas light display. The air was charged with electricity and then a wonderful sense of peace overwhelmed me.
This was a beautiful ending to a lovely, busy day.
Try to get down to the dock area for dinner at one of the great restaurants and stay to watch the lights go on as you finish your expresso.
