Jardins do Palácio de Cristal

The Romantic Gardens of the Crystal Palace occupy an area of ​​8 hectares in the center of Porto and were designed in the nineteenth century by the German landscape architect Émille David, in the context of the construction of the own building of the Crystal Palace. The original project is still preserved, the Émille David Garden in the main entrance, Avenida das Tílias, the forest and the design of the balconies on the Douro. We can also contemplate the magnificent panoramic views over the river and the city, which viewpoints in strategic positions offer us.
