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's a very nice spot to take a rest or little walk amidst many flowers (in a haphazard colour patern).

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.

Well worth a walk around if you are passing, and you are sure to at some point. Well maintained, although starting to go over a little when we were there. Lots of different plants, not just the two tone of Avenida Liberdade. Parts of the garden are not accessible to the public although you can see them from a distance.

It is truly a nice garden and one of the most beautiful places in Braga. Of course it is a must visit during the trip. But that is it :).

A small garden in the city centre of Braga surrounding by history and modernity :) You can rest and admire the local citizens rushing by!
