Parque Aquilino Ribeiro

Viseu was considered once again the best city to live in Portugal, offering the best quality of life to its inhabitants. Part of that success is due to its sustainable growth along the years. The city if full of beautiful parks and green areas where people can walk, exercise, read or simply breathe. Aquilino Ribeiro Park, named after a prestigious national writer born in the region, is one of those spots that can not be missed !

An historical park named after a writer
In 1834 the Convent of Santo António dos Capuchos ceased to exist in this place, but the Park Aquilino Ribeiro has kept the imposing oak trees (Quercus spp.) that dominate the park and used to belong to the ancient woods, chestnut trees, white poplars (Populus alba), magnolias (Magnolia grandiflora), stone pines, plane trees and lime trees (Tilia cordata), offering shade to the Capuchos friars.

The project of the landscape architect Facco Vianna Barreto has valued the Park in the beginning of the 21st century. He was also in charge of the original renovation project in 1954. The park owns a sensory garden with Braille characters, allowing blind people to touch, smell and feel the flowers. The Park thus became more romantic and peaceful.

Inside the park we can find the stunning Baroque Church of the Third Order of St. Francis and the 16th century Chapel of Nossa Senhora das Vitórias.
