Photographer's Note

Video from N-222 at https://youtu.be/1Q9TTyQIOCc - The N-222 starts in Almendra, Vila Nova de Foz Ca, Guarda district, its route is 221 km ending in Vila Nova de Gaia, Porto district - The N-222 section between the towns of Pinho and Peso da Rgua, with 27 km and the river Douro always as a company along the route, was declared in 2015 'World Best Driving Road'. (the best road in the world to drive) - The world's list of the best roads to drive is based on a formula created by a scientist - This could be just another winding road in the interior of Portugal if it had not been considered the best in the world to drive - The election of the N222 as "the best road in the world" is based on the diversity of that route - The organizers of this international competition valued the sensation created by the alternation between a more demanding and sporty driving, in 27 kilometers there are 93 curves, between tight and soft, that are interspersed by relatively long straight lines that allow a privileged view on the river and the terraces of the Douro. The gaps in the road and the landscape also contributed to the choice.
