A very colorful and calm garden. Ideal to eat an ice cream in the late afternoon, surrounded by cafes and restaurants, a mandatory stop

A nice medieval looking garden in the heart of Braga. It's surprisingly small. Well tended and clean.

This is my favorite garden in Braga. The flowers and plants are very beautiful and the building behind it is very nice as well!

A beautiful garden in the midst of the city. I think this should be replicated in cities. It gives some more greens and flowers within. Flower gardens can add more peace and normal mindset to us. I love this place. To tourist come and see this place. Don't forget to be here when you are in Braga.

It was once considered ne of the most beautiful gardens in Braga. After years of almost being neglected, it now looks alive! It is one of the places to see when in Braga.

Its a cool garden always well perserved and you can get a good walk in there, or sit to have your ice cream.

Either in winter or summer, but mainly in spring, it's mandatory to come and visit this extraordinary garden and take lots of photos. It's heritage.

A nice garden in the city centre. If you like geocaching there are some chances nearby to help you explore it.
