This time of the year, the blossoming almond trees attract thousands of tourists to Vila Nova de Foz Côa.
During the months of February and March, they offer a colourful spectacle in the Douro valleys. The landscape gets lighter shades, giving a sense of peace and dazzling anyone.
The first almond tree blossoms appear one month before spring, announcing without delay the most flowery season. From the first week of February until the first days of March the almond trees blossom and Douro gets more colourful, pure and serene. The winter stripped valleys get new clothes in white and pink.
The almond is one of the most produced fruits in Douro region and on these days there are several festivities to celebrate this beautiful natural phenomenon.
Foz Côa Youth Hostel invites you to visit the XXXV Blossoming Almond Trees and World Heritages Festivity.
