  • Known as garden of São Lázaro, it was inaugurated in 1834, being the first public garden in Porto. Typical romantic garden, full of fountains and statues, leafy trees and flower beds, in addition to a small gazebo. In spite of being considerably modified since its creation, it is nowadays the city's only garden still enclosed by railings with 4 gates. In this garden there is a marble fountain coming from the sacristy of the extinct Convent of São Domingos. Around the lake we can distinguish the set of 12 Magnolia grandiflora, classified as of great ornamental value. It is located close to the Porto Municipal Library and the Faculty of Fine Arts and is one of the most visited public gardens of the city.
