Parque de São Roque
The well known São Roque Park is a large space, with lots of trees. You can take a walk, have a café or do a picnic at using the benches and tables you’ll find there. This Park used to be the former Quinta da Lameira and opened to the public in 1979, after being bought by the Town Hall. Right at the entrance there’s a branchy, fresh grove and, as you walk through it, you’ll find stone benches, lawn platforms, a lake, a terrace over the Douro River, a small box labyrinth and a playground. During the summer, the garden has several cultural events.
