Allow yourself to enjoy the pleasure of Serralves Park and the landscaping of the Museum of Contemporary Art.
Serralves is a unique reference within Portugal’s landscape gardening history and symbolizes a process of learning and knowledge of the conditions of transformation of the territory, in terms of space and time during a specific cultural context: Portugal and the 19th and 20th centuries.
The origin of Serralves park dates back to 1923 when Carlos Alberto Cabral, the 2nd Count of Vizela, inherited the Quinta do Lordelo estate, the family’s summer residence in the Rua de Serralves (which was then on the outskirts of Oporto).
The estate’s history can be divided into specific moments: the contours of the garden at the end of the 19th century when it formed part of the Quinta do Lordelo and Quinta do Mata-Sete estates, the garden designed by Jacques Gréber for Serralves Villa, and the landscaping of the Museum of Contemporary Art.
