Photographer's Note

As I have already said in the note of my previous post, in my opinion one of the most fascinating places of Porto are the banks of its river Douro. This is of course true also by night when all the lights of the city reflects on the water. After having had dinner in one of the characteristic restaurants of Ribeira, the quarter near the river, we went for a stroll along the Douro, admiring the lovely spectacle of the town of Vila Nova de Gaia, on the opposite side, where all the cellars of Porto wine are situated, as it is visible in this photo by the luminous ensigns. To the right you can see the traditional boats called “barcos rabelos” which were used once to carry the wine barrels and now converted for sightseeing tours.
If you observe attentively the name of the boat is just “encantos do Douro” which means charm of the Douro, and to me it is a most suitable and proper title for this photo.
