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.

  • Gorgeous park with wonderful views! Throughout the park you can spot peacocks, roosters, and ducks. They are so beautiful! I visited in mid March and it the park was full of tulips and other types of spring flowers. The smell was heavenly. In the afternoon I ate a chicken sandwich in the food court area. Very good experience if you’re looking for a nice day in the park or just a quick stroll.
  • 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.
