Located in the “Heart of the Douro Demarcated Wine Region”, this parish is flanked by the Douro and Pinhão rivers, in the centre of the Port Wine Route. Due to its strategic geographic location, Pinhão soon became an important commercial entrepôt, above all for transporting Port Wine, initially in Rabelo boats, and then via freight trains along the Douro railway line and more recently via cistern trucks, which has thus enabled Pinhão to achieve rapid economic development, attaining the status of the geographical economic centre of the Demarcated Region of Port Wine. Today, Pinhão is targeted primarily towards commerce and tourism and offers visitors age-old customs and habits, traditions, grape harvests, traditional wine cellars, handicrafts and above all the Douro valley's famous terraced vineyards.
