Photographer's Note

This is a picture of the rabelos.its origin, however, leaves some doubts therefore between characteristic Scandinavians, Mediterranean or orientals none presents predominance, what for that we read we conclude that a time that is certain it is that to the boats of couro(primitive boat of the Douro, lined with skins of animals), had succeeded wooden and the not less certainty, that these, by the way as are constructed, are of the north. Later with the Romans, and already with the other eastern peoples who for had passed here and if they had fixed, other characteristics would have appeared, perfecting the adaptation to the necessities of the navigation of the difficult course of the Douro.

from the bottom of my heart I want to thank to all the people by good desires that left in the previous photo and I want to dedicate this photo to all you.
I invite all TE members to visit my birth town

regards and tks
