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.
  • Gorgeous large park with stunning views of Porto! A ton to see and walk around to wonder with lakes, workout, and playing areas. And an abundance of photo taking areas overlooking the River. Not to mention the multiple clusters of tulips that are incredibly beautiful. I highly recommend for tourists.
