Story: Mateus Palace & Gardens & Quinta do Seixo
Presenter: Trevor Cochrane
Air Date: 11th January
Trevor docks in Regua with the Viking crew for a lazy breakfast with world class views, and a local wine estate unlike any other.
- Disembark for an excursion to Vila Real, site of the extraordinary Mateus Palace.
- This stunning baroque palace was the home of the last count of Vila Real; its pinnacled facade, grand stairway, richly appointed interiors and priceless objects on display will astonish you, as will the palace’s enchanting formal gardens featuring cedar-lined walkways, exquisite, sculpted hedges and statuary and serene bodies of water.
- Then, visit one of the area’s port wine–making institutions, where you will stroll through the vineyard and bottling facility to learn how its unique port wines are crafted.
- One way that Viking helps immerse you in the local culture is introducing you to locals who call these places home and showcasing what life is like in this part of the world.
