Sunday At Serralves: Festa De Outono

Serralves (Porto): Sweetgum Tree Avenue

Serralves: Sweetgum Tree Avenue

Serralves is Paulo’s favourite garden in the city of Porto. We spent all of Sunday here, to take in an Autumn Festival (“Festa De Outono”) loaded with family activities. As you can imagine the park was teeming with kids, but most of the time it is very tranquil. Serralves is much more than a garden, however, it’s actually a very large complex and grounds which would take much more than one visit to explore.

Serralves (Porto)

From Wikipedia:

Serralves is a cultural institution located in Porto, Portugal, and one of the most important of all the country. It includes a Contemporary Art Museum, a Park and a Villa, each one an example of contemporary architecture, Modernism, and Art Deco architecture. The Museum, designed by Álvaro Siza Vieira, is now the most visited museum in Portugal (more than 300,000 visitors per year) and one of most relevant in the contemporary art circuit in Europe.
