“The garden of the Rotunda da Boavista, Mouzinho de Albuquerque Square, dates from the beginning of the 19th century and has a formal layout around the Monument to the Heroes of the Peninsular War. It's an emblematic place of the city where you can walk in the shade of the trees, or even rest. There is a lot of commerce around and in St. John and Christmas time the space gets more colour, with fun and popular parties.”

You'll also find one of the "monumental" high schools built during the dictactorship during the 1930's. This square also presents the oldest church in Porto, the XXI century romanic "São Martinho de Cedofeita" church. ”
