Vega De Tarron, Portugal

Positioned on the Portuguese border at the confluence of the rivers Douro and Águeda, the small Spanish port town of Vega de Terron is a popular passageway to the ancient university city, Salamanca. With Portuguese and Spanish influences, Vega de Terron is a charming settlement dotted on the banks of the fascinating waterway across from the beautiful Douro International Nature Park.

The small town is the last stop for the Douro before the river starts to navigate north, forming the border between Portugal and Spain, and Vega de Terron features all the hallmark qualities of a Douro Valley village. Quiet streets, lush landscapes and friendly locals make up this slow-paced town which is half-surrounded by beautiful waterways.
