Passeio Alegre Garden

Destaque
Photo:
  • Accessible for people with impairments: Physical
  • Built in the late nineteenth century benefitting from the participation of Emíle David who worked on its landscaping. Lined by a Palm Grove, it houses a variety of architectural features of great value: a granite fountain to the west, from the former S. Francisco Convent, two Nasoni obelisks, from Quinta da Prelada and a small "romantic chalet", which was built in 1874, before the completion of the Garden. The miniature golf course is a main attraction of the garden and philharmonic concerts are occasionally held in the bandstand. Lastly we highlight the public bathroom which was built in 1910 and is decorated with Art Nouveau tiles and English finishings.
