Douro Subregion is a part of Norte Region, Portugal that includes most of the Portuguese section of the Douro River.

With an area of 4,114 km² and a population of 217,000, it is one of the less-densely-populated Portuguese subregions. Its main urban centers are Vila Real (pop. 25,000), Lamego (18,000) and Régua (12,000). Other towns: Foz Côa (3,300) & Tarouca (3,200).

Its economic activity is largely centered around the production of wine, particularly port, and also non-fortified Douro wine from the Douro DOC wine region. The entire region is mountainous and crossed by steep valleys.
