The Park


Serralves Park spans 18 hectares and is constituted by a wide variety of magnificent, harmoniously interconnected spaces: formal gardens, woodlands, and a traditional farm. Designed by the architect Jacques Greber in the 1930s, it constitutes a singular reference within Portugal’s landscape heritage.
 

A visit to the Park, via any of its circuits, involving different routes and durations, is a privileged opportunity to come into contact with nature and appreciate the wide diversity of trees and shrubs, constituted by roughly 200 species and a variety of autochthonous and ornamental exotic plants. In addition, the gardens and the park also constitute a museum setting: visitors to the park will encounter sculptures from the Serralves Collection that are permanently on display.

Serralves is a unique reference within Portugal’s landscape gardening history and symbolises 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.

Jacques Gréber (1882-1962): Son of a sculptor, he trained in architecture in the École de Beaux-Arts in Paris in 1909, and subsequently dedicated his activity to landscaped gardens and urban planning.

Alteration of the original function – a private and exclusive inhabited space, a public and inclusive space for production and diffusion of culture –, associated to the state of conservation of the systems and places included within Serralves’ landscape, made it necessary to implement a Restoration Project.
