Parque do Barrocal, located in Castelo Branco, is certainly one of the most incredible parks in Portugal. Before opening to the public in November 2020, it was awarded the prestigious Architecture MasterPrize.
Barrocal is a unique natural space within the city of Castelo Branco, integrated in the UNESCO Naturtejo Global Geopark and in the International Tejo / Tajo Biosphere Reserve. Its fascinating geological landscape, shaped over 310 million of years of tectonic movements and climate change holds unexpected biodiversity.
The paths, trails, viewpoints and reference structures were designed on-site, enabling their adjustment to the topography and landscape features, becoming singular observation platforms, to soak up and experience a true nature park within the city.
Barrocal is a refreshing oasis of Natural History to discover!
