3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2012

It was an average park we expected more. It was badly kept and the palace was closed

“beautiful garden and view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2012

Walk the extra 5-10 min from the center of town to visit the garden. Beautiful place to wander, lots of roses, and views of the river.

“Nice site”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2012

the grounds and gardens below are very nice, the palace itself was nondescript. The schoolchildren on a field-trip littered the areas they visited, their disrespect was deplorable.

“Jardim a pleasant respite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

Strolling through the Jardim do Palacio de Cristal on a sunny afternoon, flowering trees, peacocks and chickens/roosters adding color was a pleasant respite after exploring the city life of Porto. Nicely kept grounds. A pretty place for a slower pace. A friendly chance encounter with a helpful and informative resident who provided her recommendations of Porto sights made the visit even more memorable.
