  • Located on a long and pleasant green area protected by high walls, with a privileged view over the Douro River, it has retained a deep hallmark of the English families which inhabited it. It was bought in 1900 by William Tait, a Port Wine negotiator who had a considerable fortune and who dedicated himself to the study of fauna and flora. Muriel Tait followed William Tait, selling the house to the Porto's City Hall, under the condition that it would be transformed into a public green space. The building has a room where temporary exhibits are held, and the gardens are of free access.
