Douro River Cruise - Day 4 Spotlight!
There are a few spots remaining for the once-in-a-lifetime Douro River cruise sponsored by the Foundation taking place in August 2018.  On Day 4 of the cruise, you will discover the captivating Varosa Valley and visit the charming village of Tarouca where you will get to explore the restored Monastery of Saint John of Tarouca. En route walk the fortified bridge of Ucanha, Portugal’s first toll bridge, spanning the crystal clear waters of the Varosa River.  Free choice options include touring the elegant town of Lamego, with its many fine Baroque structures, or enjoying a guided visit of Mateus Palace, the historic icon depicted on the labels of Portugal’s famous Mateus rosé wine.  For more details, check out the River Cruise webpage or contact our Foundation travel representative, Pat Loeser at Loeser Travel (760-743-2971) or
