Inspirock Rating:
2.9/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web
Roam through tended gardens and ponds with views of the Douro River, Porto, and the Arrabida Bridge, at 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.

  • As we enter what we saw were the word Harbor in a Navy Blue and a dome that reminded us of the grain silos that must be maintained with much urgency. After the initial scare, you will be faced with several gardens, animal, and views of the Duero River. They say that when the fog is not present the scenery is lush. Couple or in family is a perfect place to relax. Come check it out.

  • The Park is pleasant. Well taken care of. There's a lake with a bridge reminiscent of Monet. take a Super Bock beer and eat a pastel de belém, facing the Lake, in one of the chairs available.
