Parque do Palácio de Vila Flor

Green Space Check location

If you are looking for a quiet, tranquil spot near the centre of Guimarães where you can relax, this beautiful garden will enchant you.

After visiting the lovely gallery space in the Palace itself, give yourself time to sit within these gardens and reflect in peace on your experiences so far in Guimarães.

It dates back to the 18th century and is beautifully landscaped, with a succession of three levels connected by stairs. Here you can clearly see the influences of religious staircases in the civil architecture of Northern Portugal.

You will also find flower beds that are bordered by dwarf boxwood and planted with shrubs, such as rhododendrons and camellias.

The garden is free and open to the public, available whenever you need to rest your weary feet or enjoy a moment of tranquility.
