  • The now denominated Parque de São Roque, with OVER 4 hectares, was sold in 1979 by the family Calém to the City Council of Porto, having been opened to the public the same year and revived in the beginning of 1990. The gardens boast very stylish elements from the last century, such as: minarets, hedgerows, waterspouts, bonfires, etc. A set of sculptural pieces was therefore installed by the Council of Porto and at that point, a chapel that had existed until then in Largo Actor Dias was reconstructed, as well as the labyrinth of Buxus sempervirens. It maintains the characteristic of the romantic garden. Since the academic year 2002/2003 it also lodges the Centre for Environmental Education.
