Parque da Alta Vila

Águeda

Presentation
This park is a good example of revivalist architecture with a romantic motivation, that can be seen in the watchtowers and battlements sculpted in its confining walls which show mediaeval influences, or even in the layout of the park itself, dotted with small bridges, lakes and plantations of exotic trees.

Specific characteristics

We owe the existence of this place to the enterprising spirit of Dr. Eduardo Caldeira, who, in the second half of the 19th-century, transformed a small, bare plateau (located in the centre of Agueda) into a majestic ?oasis? populated with rare and exotic trees and beautiful gardens with various leisure facilities.
