Roam through tended gardens and ponds with views of the Douro River, Porto, and the Arrabida Bridge, at Jardins do Palacio de Cristal. The original crystal palace building in the park was demolished in the 1950s, so come for the gardens and not for the building, which has seen better days. The park provides an ideal location for a picnic or peaceful relaxation. Watch for the colorful peacocks that roam the grounds, and for a snack, grab an ice cream from one of the kiosks on site.

  • Nice garden, relaxing and refreshing to the mind, body and soul. Huge. You will see peacocks, roosters. It is also a good spot to see the Duoro river. It is a good stretch so wear comfortable shoes.

  • Definitely great location for families, couples or lovers of refreshing shadow during summer. There was also friends b-day picking, so I guess good for that too. Lovely chickens (aww, the baby ) - if you lucky you can find some beautiful feathers. Amazing view points. Some bars (library bar and Super Bock Arena) to refresh yourself as well. Also - location is good, kinda easy to reach by foot or with a car (parking). And free.
  • Marvellous park. Well designed, well planned. A lot do discover. Benches with amazing views. A lot of secret and hidden places for calming yourself down after all the mess of the city center, for having deep talks with friends or kisses in the sunset. Nice birds as well. ;-)
