  • The gardens and woods of Quinta de Nova Sintra are now in a phase of a major restoration. After January 2018 it will be possible to visit the place. This park, once property of the Reid family, of British origin, was acquired by the Porto City Council in 1932. The garden retains many original features: wide botanical diversity, dense trees, lush forests, many alleys and byways. The small palace of the farm is now occupied by the company Águas do Porto and respective infrastructure and the green space of the farm, turned into a park, houses old fountains and drinking fountains of Porto displaced at the time of the progressive water piping in the city.
