One of the best views in Porto
Jul 2021
Great place to spend the afternoon with some friends or even alone. There are always some local or ex-pat musicians playing nice songs. Really one of the nicest views of Porto. Near to the beautiful Ponte Dom Luís, worth the visit.

it is a little crowded at times, but well worth it.
Sit and enjoy the view. if you are into it, a good Port will be excellent company.

THE Place to Watch the Sunset over Porto
Feb 2020 • Solo
A fantastic viewpoint at the upper cablecar station, one of the best views you will get of Porto.
They have landscaped a beautiful park here, including an amphitheatre- like set of curved concrete benches for you to sit on and drink in the view. The best time to go is in the evening as the sun sets. There will be musicians and a great vibe as a combination of tourists and chilled locals meet to chat and watch the sun go down over the Douro and Porto .
I loved it here, I went back every evening I was in Porto!

Beautiful garden at the foot of the Monastery
Oct 2019
There was a dual reason for visiting this garden on a Saturday night. Taking the D line, we crossed the Pont Luis I bridge inches from tourists crossing on the top level. We were careful to cross the train tracks at marked crossovers and started to climb the hill that is the Jardim do Morro. My husband climbed the extra 30’ to the top of the garden. We then walked down to the circular seating that faced the bridge and the gondola station. The vista from the seating was spectacular. We were at Mosteira the day before, but I liked this view better...maybe because the clouds that were beginning to gather for Sunday and Monday forecasted rains made the sky so very interesting.
The second reason was that getting a good seat on the D line at Jardim de Morro heading toward Hospital São Joãn would be easier than from São Bento. It worked.

A Pleasant Spot
Oct 2019
This little park is very handy for a number of reasons. Firstly it provides a nice rest area after a leisurely walk across the Dom Luis bridge with its spectacular views. Secondly, there are always benches available in shade or sun if you feel like reading, or even to sit and enjoy an ice cream. Thirdly, it contains the top end of the funicular and hence an easy way into the port tasting places and the restaurants frequented by the locals who work in these places. Fourthly, it is close to a few places many people want to visit such as Mosteiro da Serra do Pilar in Vila Nova de Gaia- though like most places here it involves a little climb. Lastly the metro passes just yards away and is an excellent way to avoid too many steep climbs. With all this going for it I think it@s worth a fifth star!

Best view the city!

Very cute place to meet sunset. Bring with you some blanket, port wine and snacks - and enjoy life. There is just 1 minus - too much of other sunsets lovers.

If you walk on the top level of the famous bridge you arrive in this park. It has excellent views over Porto, so recommend it for that.

Great sunset views
Sep 2019
Really nice park for families. But the best part is the views of Porto. Especially during the sunset. It gets packed so you want to get there early...and nice little night life in that same area and also great to have a few drinks while watching the sun set.

Sunset to remmember

Fantastic environment, with precious views of Porto. Ideal for watching the sunset. You can enjoy the local delicacies and all kinds of drinks. The live music invites you to stay even after the sunset.

See the sun go down
Jul 2019
The garden is pretty average to be fair but its selling point is the great vantage over the bridge, the slopes of Porto and the sunset. Every night it was busy with young people hanging out, drinking beer and there was usually someone playing music. We took several photos from here.
Just to be clear - this is not a garden to visit for the garden itself. It is a place to watch the sunset.
