“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.”

“City lifers will tell you that everyone in Porto should watch the sun rise at the Morro garden at least once in their lifetime. Time Out thinks the garden is great at any time of the day. Its view is, anyway. You can get there with the subway (Jardim do Morro stop) but crossing the upper deck of the Luiz I bridge on foot is an experience almost as gratifying as lying on the garden’s slopes.”

Occupies one part of the Fábrica Social (Social Factory), divided into exhibition halls, multipurpose room, shop and cafe and is a prominent place in the cultural and artistic city panorama.”
