CRYSTAL PALACE GARDENS

Porto's Most Beautiful Gardens Overlooking the Douro River

Palacio de Cristal Gardens This beautifully landscaped park is dominated by a huge domed pavilion built in 1956 which replaced the 19th century iron-and-glass "Crystal Palace." Today's pavilion serves as a venue for concerts and sporting events.

It is surrounded by a lake, flowerbeds, and roaming peacocks, all overlooking the Douro River, of which there are superb views.

There is also a multimedia library, an auditorium, a cafeteria, and the Romantic Museum.

Across the street from the park entrance is the gateway to the city's art galleries district (Rua Miguel Bombarda has the largest number).
