The Pavilhão dos Desportos was previously called Pavilhão Rosa Mota in honour of the illustrious athlete from Porto. Opened in 1956, it was built to replace the famous Palácio de Cristal (Crystal Palace) which was demolished in 1951. This dome shaped building was the project of architect José Carlos Loureiro. It can be used for various sporting, recreational and cultural events namely, music concerts, theatre, circus, congress and expositions among others.

 

Gardens of Palácio de Cristal

The Romantic Gardens of Palácio de Cristal occupy an area of 8 hectares in Porto's centre and they were designed in the 19th century by the German landscape architect Émille David, in the context of constructing the building of Palácio de Cristal (Crystal Palace). Currently, the following still remain preserved in accordance with the original project: Jardim Émille David at the main entrance, Avenida das Tílias, the forest and the balconies' design over the river Douro. We can also contemplate magnificent panoramic views over the river and the city that the viewpoints in strategic places offer to us. It is to be noted that these gardens, making a good use of the botanic heritage and of the ludic-cultural dynamics, is home to an Environmental Education Centre.

 

[PORT]

Os Jardins Românticos do Palácio de Cristal, ocupam uma área de 8 hectares no centro do Porto e foram projetados no século XIX pelo arquiteto paisagista alemão Émille David, no contexto da construção do próprio edifício do Palácio de Cristal. Atualmente conservam-se ainda do projeto original, o Jardim Émille David na entrada principal, a Avenida das Tílias, o bosque e a conceção das varandas sobre o Douro. Podemos ainda contemplar as magníficas panorâmicas sobre o rio e sobre a cidade, que miradouros em posições estratégicas nos oferecem. De referir que estes jardins tirando partido do património botânico e da dinâmica lúdico-cultural, acolhe um Centro de Educação Ambiental
