Porto’s Jardins do Palácio de Cristal

If you find yourself in Porto, Portugal, make time for the Jardins do Palacio de Cristal. I spent a couple of hours wandering the formal gardens, forests, and riverside trails of this park. Along the trails you’ll find incredible views over the Douro River. Enjoy this visual tour of the gardens designed in the 19th century by Emille David. At the time I went the gardens were overflowing with camellias!

  1. Yay! I lived in Porto during the summer of 2006 and I walked by this garden almost every day. I spent so much time here. It is one of those truly perfect places on earth… Then there are also the gardens at the Serralves, which are stunning in a very cultivated kind of way. But the Jardins are a bit wild. And the views are fantastic. (There’s a world-renowned landscape architecture program at the Universidade do Porto. That’s why Porto, and northern Portugal in general, have fabulous gardens everywhere.)
