A friend in Paredes de Coura suggested we visit the gardens. We were not disappointed. Even though it was toward the end of the season, the displays were still quite lovely. Each one different and showing hours and hours of work to create them. It...More

We hosted here in a sunny afternoon. Only cost a couple of euros / kids go free. Quirky show gardens if different sizes set in nicely landscaped gardens. It was very pleasant and relaxing to wander amongst although teenage son wasn't so impressed!

It was not too busy and a beautiful autumn day, so a lot of fun. Children also like it, they have swings, a giant chess game and attractions to tickle their fantasy. Plenty of benches to have a short siesta while the kids play.
