Virtudes garden

Jardim das Virtudes“The garden of virtues”

Walk of Virtues (Passeio das Virtudes)

It is located in what used to be the Companhia Hortícola Portuense. Designed by José Marques Loureiro (1830-1898), it was bought in 1965 by the Porto City Hall and in 1998 restoration works were carried out.

One of the particularities of this garden is the fact that it is vertical, it develops in terraces down the slope, so almost everywhere you have a unique view over the Customs, the Douro River and Vila Nova de Gaia.

Right side its possible to see the vertical gardens
Customs building (Edifício da Alfandega)
Behind the tuk-tuk we have the Art school (Escola Artística e Profissional Árvore)
