A perfect ending

Passing through the Arribes del Duero is a fascinating adventure. The river, running to Portugal, has carved out canyons in the provinces of Salamanca and Zamora creating unreal, rugged and often inaccessible landscapes. Although the Arribes are enjoyed formidably in both provinces, it's worth it to cross the Lusitanian lands and, as a final point, visit the town of Miranda do Douro. There are several reasons. The first, there are amazing views from the old Lusa city walls. The bends in the river, the depths of the cut canyons, and the vineyards dotted with old vine-keepers' houses, are incomparable surroundings. The second reason is the town's beauty. Despite its historical importance from the 2nd century onward, it has a small-town soul. Walking down the steep, cobbled streets, you can admire its cathedral and medieval buildings along the picturesque Rua Costanilha, look into its craft stores, or try their delicious local cuisine. Miranda is a perfect ending, at the height of the majestic Douro.

This portuguese city i liked very muc...

This Portuguese city I liked very much, because it has it all: modernity, tradition and nature. It is the capital of the "concelho" (municipal administrative unit) of Miranda, in the north of Portugal, in the region of the Land of Miranda. It is small and divided into two parts: the new area (where there are houses, restaurants and retailers) and the historic center, made up of narrow stone streets, with great care, that guard the main historical monuments). From one area to another it takes only 5 minutes walk along the avenue Aranda do Douro. The city has preserved its ancestral customs and traditions, as you can see from his party (the dance of the "pauliteros" or traditional music), in crafts or in the museum Terra de Miranda, where they are exposed regional characteristic clothes and other evidence. Has preserved its language (Mirandese), a mixture of Portuguese and Spanish. It is bordered by two rivers, the Fresno and the Douro, and has the good fortune of being in a unique natural setting, the Parque Natural do Douro Internacional - Los Arribes del Duero, along with the Spanish provinces of Zamora and Salamanca. His "concelho" covers an area of ​​484.08 km2 and 9000 inhabitants divided into 17 "parishes" (secondary administrative units): Águas Vivas, Atenor, Cicouro, Constantim, Duas Igrejas, Genisio, Ifanes, Malhadas, Miranda do Douro , Palaçoulo, Paradela, Picote, Póvoa, São Martinho, Sendim, Vila Cha Da Silva and Braciosa.

Questa città portoghese mi è piaciuta davvero molto, perché possiede tutto: modernità, tradizione e natura. È la capitale del "concelho" (unità amministrativa comunale) di Miranda, nella zona settentrionale del Portogallo, nella regione della Terra di Miranda. È piccola e divisa in due parti: la zona nuova (dove si trovano le case, i ristoranti e gli esercizi commerciali) e il centro storico, formato da strette strade in pietra, curatissime, che custodiscono i principali monumenti storici). Da una zona all'altra ci vogliono solo 5 minuti a piedi lungo il viale Aranda do Douro. La città ha saputo conservare i suoi costumi e le tradizioni più ancestrali, come si può vedere dalle sue feste (la danza dei "pauliteros" o la musica tradizionale), negli oggetti d'artigianato o nel museo Terra de Miranda, dove sono esposti i caratteristici abiti regionali e altre testimonianze. Ha conservato anche la sua lingua (il mirandese), un misto fra portoghese e castigliano. È bagnata da due fiumi, il Fresno e il Duero, e ha la fortuna di trovarsi in un contesto naturale ineguagliabile, il Parque Natural do Douro Internacional - Los Arribes del Duero, insieme alle province spagnole di Zamora e Salamanca. Il suo "concelho" copre un'area di 484,08 Km2 e 9000 abitanti suddivisi in 17 "freguesias" (unità amministrative secondarie): Águas Vivas, Atenor, Cicouro, Constantim, Duas Igrejas, Genísio, Ifanes, Malhadas, Miranda do Douro, Palaçoulo, Paradela, Picote, Póvoa, São Martinho, Sendim, Silva e Vila Chã da Braciosa.

On the other side of the duero, on a ...

On the other side of the Duero, on a hill, this Portuguese city dominated by its cathedral sixteenth century deserves a visit. It is a place of defense of the border that has retained its castle and the walled enclosure. But the most enjoyable are the streets and squares of the old town, kept up and full of flowers, where there are shops of all kinds.

De l’autre côté du Duero, sur une colline, cette ville portugaise dominée par sa cathédrale du XVIe siècle mérite votre visite. Il s’agit d’un lieu de défense de la frontière qui a conservé son château et l’enceinte fortifiée. Mais les plus agréables sont les rues et les places du vieux quartier, entretenues au maximum et pleines de fleurs, où il y a des magasins de toutes sortes.
