Landmark · Tourist Spot
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.
