Jardim da Arca d' Água

The name “Arca d’Água” is due to the fountain and reservoirs that exist in this spot. This is one of the most pleasant gardens in the city and one of the top preferences of children, with its leafy trees, a lake with animals, an artificial grotto and lots of green spaces. “A Familía”, a sculpture by Charters de Almeida, from 1972 stands out.
