Photographer's Note

Graças ao seu clima particular, o Douro Superior consegue anunciar a primavera com cerca de um mês de antecedência.

Atingem-se os 12 graus durante 3 ou 4 dias e eis o fabuloso espectáculo - a abertura da flor da amendoeira.
Em Fevereiro e Março, os quatro concelhos, Freixo de espada à Cinta, Mogadouro, Torre de Moncorvo e Vila Nova de Foz Côa, vestem-se de branco e rosa para receber quem os visita.
Todos os anos o Douro Superior brinda os seus visitantes, com o magnifico espectáculo proporcionado pela mãe natureza – “ As Amendoeiras em Flor”.


Thanks to peculiar weather conditions and climate the Douro River north region anticipates the springtime about one month.
Spring is announced here with a sudden blooming of the earth lasting no more than a month, - a time of increasing rainless and rapidly dropping temperatures.

During 3 or 4 days the temperature reaches 12º Celsius degrees and with this we have the world famous and surprising show the blooming of the almond trees.
