Walk through the Estate

The 8km pedestrian footpath through the Quinta Nova de Nossa Senhora do Carmo estate is a way to exercise while exploring the Quinta’s vineyards and historic sites.

To replenish your energies at the end, enjoy some winetasting or a visit to the winery and our museum. If you want to relax a bit more, you can also try some of the delicious food of the Douro region and have lunch or dinner at Terraçu's restaurant.

NOTE: Free walk. Please go to the reception of Quinta Nova Winery House Relais et Chateaux to collect the map of the footpaths. We recommend bringing comfortable shoes, water and an energetic spirit.

Approximate duration: 1 ½ hours to 3 hours
