Gardens & Park

An authentic and spontaneous garden... The natural conditions of Ponte de Lima make this valley an authentic and spontaneous garden. Beside the river Lima, the poplars (Populus sp.) and willows (Salix alba) form authentic copings. In the plains, in addition to the cultures, the fields are filled with wildflowers, composing the most beautiful floral carpet of colours: corn marigolds (Chrysantemum segetum) and borage (Borago officinalis). On the slopes, between the green of the forest are yellow and white tones of mimosa, broom and gorse and the purple tone of lilac, pink and purple heather (Calluna vulgaris).
