Between furrows or walls, the lanes are a key feature in the built landscape, like the arteries of the body, the local lanes and pathways were responsible for transforming the grandiose Douro landscape: people, wine, stone, sumac, timber, and thorny fruits the region produced flowed through them. Like a type of backbone, the Douro River, the Great Road, attracted trade but obliged merchants to travel far. Still today, despite new roadways, the locals still use them to reach farm land or forests.
