This charming traditional inn is located in the village of Alijó, next to the Douro River. Its name is homage to Joseph James Forrester, an English Businessman, who lived in Portugal during the XIX century and who in 1855 received the title of Baron from King Fernando II due to his dedication to the state and his contribution to the Douro and the Port wine. Befitting for the name the historical hotel features vineyards and it is close to some of the most famous producers of Port wines. Located in the center of the village, it is the only Pousada of Portugal inserted in the Douro Demarcated Region, making it the perfect place for a relaxing holiday. Inside the Pousada, the Restaurant "O Barão" offers a varied menu, inspired by traditional Portuguese cuisine and the use of local products. Slow cooking, great presence of vegetables, sensible use of spices, simplicity and harmony of the flavors of the dishes, is the set of these elements that characterize our cuisine. The Pousada breathes a contemporary atmosphere, keeping its Douro roots visible in every detail. The Douro atmosphere is also visible in each of the unit's 21 rooms, referring the visitor to moments and landscapes of the Douro valley.
