Sao Salvador

Sao Salvador is a charming little village, situated amid the rugged beauty of the Douro Valley. Azulejos tiles (from soul, blue'), the favorite form of Portuguese architectural decoration, and 'tile tapestries' (tapetes) may be seen on many buildings here, particularly on the beautiful town hall of Sao Joe. Its steep, winding roads lead to its famous nine chapes. From Sao Salvador, enjoy a spectacular view of the river and valley.
