Jardim do Palacio de Cristal

Interesting
This garden symbolises the romantic ideal of oneness with nature. With its pretty planted avenues, grottoes, pool and fountains, it is an idyllic place for a stroll, picnic or nap. Below are views over Vila Nova da Gaia, the Douro and (on a clear day) the distant coast. Originally the site of the Serre (Crystal Palace), which in 1952 was replaced by a graceless sports pavilion, now a cultural, recreation and sports centre.
