Dr. Adelino Sampaio Garden

Avenida António Feijó 4990-150 Ponte de Lima 41° 46’ 2,3” N | 8° 34’ 59,1” W
Avenida António Feijó 4990-150 Ponte de Lima

A garden with annual beds that includes the Town Hall, the Pelourinho and Casa Torreada dos Barbosa Aranha. Euonymus fortuney is used for the higher hedges that surround the larger beds, which are also divided by boxwood (Buxus sempervirens) and planted with annual bedding plants. 

Other interesting features in this garden are the sundial, the Monument to the Poet António Feijó and Fonte da Vila (Town Fountain) - tradition has it that those who drink from this fountain will never leave Ponte de Lima. In the upper part of the garden, parallel to Avenida António Feijó, a bandstand is surrounded by camellias (Camellia Japonica). 

In the flowerbeds we can find some Metrozideros, roses (Rosa), azaleas and rhododendrons (Rhododendron). The wall facing the Town Hall building is covered in a fern (Nephrolepis tuberosa) and with the climbing fig (Ficus pumila) and japanese creeper (Parthenocissus tricuspidata). The containers alongside the ramp leading to the Casa da Porta de Braga, are planted with gardenia (Gardenia jasminoides), French lavender (Lavandula stoechas), rosemary (Rosmarinus officilalis 'Prostatus'), thyme (Thymus), curry plant (Helychrisum italicum) and Diosma ericoides.
