Jardim do Passeio Alegre

In this beautiful large garden placed at the Foz do Douro, created at the end of the XIX century, the fountain and the two obelisks by Nasoni stand out. There is also a small lake with a sculpture in the centre representing a young lady with a seal, a sculpture in honour of the writer Raúl Brandão, a bandstand, and the public toilets, built in 1910, decorated with Art nouveau Azulejos (tile) and English china. At last, the place has a mini-golf pitch and a small cottage – esplanade called the Chalé Suíço.
