  • The Municipal Park of Virtues is located where the Porto Gardens Company was set before. Projected by José Marques Loureiro (1830-1898), it was bought in 1965 by the City Council of Porto and, in 1998, restoration works were carried out. One of the particularities of this garden is the fact of being vertical, in other words, it stretches out on the steep slope terraces, and therefore, from almost every part of it, there is a unique view over the Alfândega (Customs Building), the river Douro and Vila Nova de Gaia.
