Gardens in Sintra
Pena Palace Park
Normally when you get to Sintra you take one of the buses that go up to the Pena Palace and the Moorish Castle. But I got the bright idea to convince the group to walk, of course, I didn't know the exact path and nothing was further from my intention to almost kill us (anyone can do the exercise, but my group was not very motivated). Yes, the effort was worth it to us all because the trip was spectacular. For hikers, I really recommend walking up, the palace is beautiful and the castle too, but really the most impressive thing was the vegetation of Sintra.

Monte Palace Tropical Garden
When I took the cable car to reach this site, I didn't realise I was on the verge of discovering one of the most beautiful botanical gardens I've ever seen in my life. There are plants from around the world, as the climate here is very suitable for growing them: azaleas, heathers, different types of trees, giant ferns and encephalartos, which are regarded as living fossils. There are 72 known species of them, and you can see 60 in this garden. Then, of course, there is a space dedicated to the lovely flowers native to Madeira. Besides the impressive vegetation and oriental gardens, you can also visit two exhibitions located within the park: one shows an interesting collection of minerals, and the other shows the sculptural work of several artists from Zimbabwe

Madeira Botanical Gardens
A small trip with atmosphere, with both the cable car ride up, as well as going down in bus (how the people operate them), make a visit to the Botanical have that small touch of adventure, that normal city gardens may lack. If you visit on a sunny day, which is common since Funchal is in the south of the island, you will notice that the colors are more incredible when you see it all together. A lovely walk of going up and down will complete a whole morning's worth of exercise and pleasure for all the senses. I took enough pictures to fill up a memory card, but I leave you with seven.

This park is along the river Mondego, in Coimbra, and was a project of architect Camilo Cortesão. It's very relaxing to stroll through this park, to sunbathe, walk, take the kids to play, have a picnic, read the small shadow - a good place to relax! We found an area with bars along the river and a playground.

Over the years this park has had many names: Olival do Campo (1613), Alameda do Olival (1661), Jardim da Cordoaria (1662) and since 1835 João Chagas Garden (or Campo dos Martires da Patria). This area of ​​the city is known as "Cordoaria" (cordonería) because of the Miragaia cobblers here. The park is pretty big with abundant vegetation, benches, a pond with a large ornamental fountain and various sculptures, such as the monument to Ortigão Ramalho that pays homage to martyrs of the homeland. The park occupies the central part of a block and is surrounded by several interesting buildings, such as the Natural History Museum, the Faculty of Science, the Chapel of San José de Taipas, the Clerics Tower and the Carmelite Church (Igreja do Carmo).
Gardens in Furnas
Terra Nostra Park
This is an impressive and historic garden within a fabulous hotel! The Parque Terra Nostra, or Our Land Park, was constructed along with the Municipal Park of Ribeira Grande, one of the most popular parks, and two of the most important on the island of Sao Miguel in the Azores archipelago. This garden dates back to the 18th century, when the American Thomas Hickling came to make a fortune on Sao Miguel and created one of the most beautiful gardens and the island paradise. I personally recommend the tour through the garden's winding roads to discover for yourselves all the flora that has grown over hundreds of years, surrounding lakes where many swans bathe. In fact, within the garden, the 3-star hotel "Terra Nostra Garden" was opened in 1933 to encourage Azorean tourism.

Malta Garden
The Garden of Malta is located inside the Royal Palace of Queluz, in the town of Queluz and Sintra near Lisbon. The initial project was commissioned by Queluz Palace Mateus Vicente de Oliveira, reference architect at the time. The work began more or less around 1747. Known as the Portuguese Versailles, it was built by participating architects, decorators, and gardeners all throughout Europe. They all came together to convert the Royal Palace to a great refernce of 18th century architecture. Although the influences are French and Italian, the palace has features typical of the region, such as the famous Portuguese tiles. French architect Jean-Batiste Robillon was the one responsible for ensuring that the decoration of the palace corresponded to the time, the French style, imitating the Palace of Versailles in Paris. The best European artists worked the most beautiful spaces inside the palace, and the rooms that should be highlighted are the Throne of Music and the Ambassadors. To bridge the gap between the upper gardens and the main palace is built Robillon Hall and Staircase of the Lions. The gardens also have a stamp Malta French and are decorated with lakes, statues, roads boxwoods, balustrades and railings covered work blue and pink tiles Portuguese. The main facade was built with the purpose to face towards the interior gardens. The outside facade is quiet sober.
Gardens in Vila Nova de Gaia
Jardim do Morro
Many visitors know and cross the Dom Luis bridge between Porto and Gaia, but the majority do so on the lowest level, where cars pass. If you want to have spectacular and panoramic views from Porto, it is best to follow the subway path, in the higher part. If you do not suffer from vertigo, you can cross it and take fantastic photographs from the small park opposite, in Gaia, where groups usually meet to chat, or gentlemen students to enjoy the afternoon.
Gardens in Coimbra
Jardim da Manga
Also known as the "Cloister da Manga", it is located very close to the beautiful church of Santa Cruz in the lower part of the city, next to the post office. The thing that catches your eye the most is the original, somewhat deteriorated building which was built by Joao de Ruão. In the beautiful Renaissance style from the XVI century, it is said that it once formed part of a monastery, and stood at the center of one of the three cloisters of the Santa Cruz Monastery. Now there is a restaurant behind the cloister. I ate there the first time I visited Coimbra, and it is very well priced. The cloister was classified as a National Monument in 1934.

Christmas trees from New Zealand are quite a big thing! The garden city of Ribeira Grande is located in the center of the city of Ribeira Grande 18 kilometers Northeast of Punta Delgada, on the island of San Miguel and belongs to the archipelago of the Azores.
