Alan Rogers Review
Quinta da Agueira can be found in Portugal’s north eastern corner, around 30 km. from the Spanish border, on the edge of the pretty town of Mogadouro. There are 90 unshaded grassy pitches on this modern site. These are mostly equipped with electrical connections (12A) and range in size from around 50-100 sq.m. The site forms a part of a municipal sports complex and campers have access to a swimming pool, separate children’s pool and tennis. The town centre is easily accessible on foot and there are a number of cafés, shops and restaurants.
Given its location, this site may appeal as an en-route stop, but there is much of interest to merit a longer stay. Mogadouro lies close to the Douro national park. The Douro is, of course, one of the great rivers of the Iberian peninsula and the wine and port growing section close to the Spanish border has attracted UNESCO world heritage status. There are some excellent walking and cycling opportunities in this relatively under-populated corner of Portugal.

Approaching from the north (Miranda da Douro) take the southbound N221 to Mogadouro. The site is to the southwest of the town centre and is well signed.
