Museums & Thematic Centres
The Douro Extension of the City Museum, formerly known as the Port Wine Museum, now expands its programme to the scrutiny of the Douro.

Douro-river that overflows to the banks, becoming also the name of a region. From its long course [about 900 km], it is here - between Barca d'Alva on the border with Spain to Barqueiros almost flowing into Porto - that the Douro is the name of a meeting of water, stones, plants, animals and people, and the key behind which this meeting for the first time, and also the last, takes place.

Douro, region and river, simultaneously, whose complexity cannot be encompassed by a single gaze. For this reason, the space that is now reopening, with the new Douro: land and atmosphere will subsequently take on a seasonal rhythm, in harmony with the cycles of the vine, and will be reactivated, with new exhibitions, in the months of March and September.

Its mission, located in the Ribeira, as an embassy or outpost of the Douro in Porto, will be fine-tuned on the basis of a programme developed in conjunction with the architect Pedro Jervell, a privileged meeting point for, on the basis of the contributions of various knowledges, inventing an enlightened and poetic look at an arid and generous region, where for many centuries man and nature have reinvented each other.

At station 11 we taste a wine with the river on the horizon, but we also discover the Wine Office, which will soon open, a place for tertulias. Here, the idea that Porto is mere customs is deconstructed, but rather a place where wine matures and rests. An invitation that is also a starting point to discover this demarcated region.
