Things to do

-Old town: The historic town centre of Marco de Canaveses is a great place to tour if only to marvel at the unique architecture of the buildings there. The Santa Maria Church, the Vinhal Tower and the Town Hall are stunning examples of distinct architectural styling that give this town a unique flavour.

-River Douro: One of the two rivers flowing through this locale is River Douro and there are few views more soothing and relaxing than that seen from across the Douro. Indeed, this is one of the prettiest spots in Porto. Tourists bearing pent-up stress from their hectic daily routines need only take a walk along this river or across any of its bridges to recapture the joy of living. Viewing the sunset from where the river drains into the ocean is a photographer’s dream.

-Zona Ribeirinha: This broadwalk enables visitors to enjoy all the delights of Oporto in one fell swoop; a lively, celebratory ambience with magnificent views all round, a host of bars and restaurants offering a tantalising range of repasts and beverages and bargain hunting in markets. You haven’t visited Porto until you’ve strolled through this wharf and holidaymakers residing in Marco de Canaveses holiday homes will find it’s no big hassle getting there.

-Food and drink: One of the greatest treats of a Porto holiday is the part where one gets to dig into Portuguese specialities served in ambient establishments like the ODE Porto Wine House. Most visitors have declared this diner one of Portugal’s finest and with good reason. The skilled chef garnishes each of his servings with authentic Portuguese ingredients and visitors can get tasty local wine to go with their dish.

Weather in Marco de Canaveses

The weather in this locale varies greatly in that it can be extremely scorching in summer and get very chilly in winter. Temperatures close to the 40°C mark are not unheard of between July and August while towards the northern reaches of the city where the place gets mountainous, winter temperatures can fall as low as -10°C. Fog and snow cover the landscape at this time of year. Summer is by contrast hot and dry, with hardly any rainfall being recorded from June to August.

Travel to Marco de Canaveses

Paradise on earth....

5 of 5
first time in Douro and we will come back ! Quinta das Tilias is one of these hidden gem you see from far when cruising on the Douro and you would never dare dreaming having for yourself... and we did ! We spent a week in this wonderful place, comfortable, charming, spacious and super well located. Marcos has been a fantastic host, super reactive and always going the extra mile to organize activities, offer tips and even delivering a full Portuguese meal prepared by a local chef on our terrace. A must go !
