The International Garden Festival of Ponte de Lima is located on the right bank of the river Lima. It has an area of about 2,5 ha and is organized into four areas: the parking area, the pool and bar area, the recreation and contemplation zone and the area defined as the International Garden Festival - with 12 distinct spaces in shape and area. A metal pergola, covered with clinging plants, extends throughout this space and separates the zone of 12 flowerbeds of leisure and pools.

Fruit plants, clinging plants and vines that existed were kept, offering visitors more shade, making this space even more welcoming to those who visit.

The International Garden Festival of Ponte de Lima is an annual event occurring from the last Friday of May and closing on October 31st. From November to May, the gardens are dismantled and the new edition is prepared with all the bustle of construction. The gardens selection is object of an evaluation by a jury after an international competition.

Everyone is welcome to apply regardless of age, profession or nationality. The creativity of the authors and the expression of ideas is what really matters.
The International Garden Festival of Ponte de Lima won the International Garden Festival of the Year 2013 Award at the Garden Tourism Awards - 2013 North American Garden Tourism Conference - in Toronto - Canada.

It was also nominated for the "Novo Norte" Awards in the category of  "Norte Criativo". The "Novo Norte" Awards is a joint initiative of The North Regional Coordination and Development Commission (CCDR-N) and the "Jornal de Notícias" newspaper.
