This prominent European contemporary circuit, part of the most-visited museum in Portugal, aims to bring attention to art and the fragile environment. Built on 18 hectares (44 acres) dotted with modern sculptures, the complex includes a 14-gallery museum, farmland, a shop, a bookstore, and several cafes.

  • I went there with some friends on a Sunday morning to see the Miró exposition and it was a really nice experience. The place is beautiful from the entrance to the installations and specially the garden. We spend almost 3 hours there and it was a pleasant time. Greener area and a lot more to see. Highly recommend. Will come back!
  • Fabulous park with sculpture and excellent landscape design. Extremely well maintained. New museum and historic Arte deco mansion are perfect. One warning: we had our rental car broken into on a miserable rainy day. We were told that thieves target rental cars because assumed tourists are trusting and leave stuff in their locked car. If you come in a car, do not leave anything in sight in the car. Porto is not 100% safe.
