Fundação De Serralves, Porto
(4/5 based on 1,600 reviews on the web)
In a minimalist building, Fundação De Serralves hosts frequently changing contemporary art exhibits. 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. Use an audio guide at the museum to learn about its frequently changing exhibits and activities--there is not a single permanent exhibit at the site. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Porto holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Fundação De Serralves and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Between visit the Museum worth modernism in a relaxing atmosphere. Get out and walk through the gardens, you have several to choose from, by the Lake, spices/aromatic, but the Roses by the Arbor makes us in a time well.

  • It is not worth, the area is fatally connected, gardens are not otherworldly. Back 1 hour we were waiting for the bus and at the end we had to take a taxi. Absolute disappointment.

  • One of the greatest location to visit in Porto, great gardens for a walk and a lot of seasonal activities and celebration like Autumn Party, Serralves em Festa.
  • How boring. Museum is nice but the garden is not very interesting and it is a difficult place to get to. If you live the red tour buses then it's easier to get to but still not with it.
  • The museum holds a nice exhibition but the gardens are what are totally worth. They are great. Free entrance on sunday mornings.
  • Fantastic place
  • Both museum and the park are absolutely worth it on sundays. There's free entrance on that day until 1pm!
