1. Porto: Serralves Foundation Entry Ticket

Explore Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art and its grounds with your entry ticket. See why the entire landscape and architectural heritage were classified as a National Monument in 2012.  Enjoy different parts of the museum, which consists of the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Casa do Cinema Manoel de Oliveira (both designed by the architect Álvaro Siza), Serralves Villa (a unique example of Art Deco architecture), and the 18-hectare Serralves Park, which was recently complemented by the pioneering Treetop Walk: an elevated walkway close to the treetops. Visit the Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art, which was designed by Álvaro Siza Vieira, a Pritzker Prize winner. The Museum of Contemporary Art presents exhibitions by leading Portuguese and foreign artists, concerts, dance shows, and performances, among other activities. Enjoy the 18-hectare Serralves Park, designed by Jacques Gréber, is a unique example of Portugal's landscape heritage. It consists of a wide range of spaces: formal gardens, woods, a traditional farm and the Treetop Walk.

Learn about the biodiversity of Portugal and the country’s history of landscape gardening with an informative trip to Serralves Park. See the incredible diversity of trees and shrubs at Serralves, consituting approximately 8,000 examples of plants and representing around 230 species and varieties.

The aim of the project is to educate the public on the importance of protecting landscape heritage and reconciling it with the needs of contemporary society. The Park's programming is founded on the development of programming cycles intended to take place on an annual basis. Playful dimensions and learning processes underlie the main structural and complementary aspects of the programme of activities for the general public.

Places to Visit in Porto

Large gardens and museums take 3-4 hours, but are among the best in Porto. I highly recommend it. The advantage of buying this ticket during the waiting time is negligible, as both the advance sale and the same day ticket are in the same line.

Fast, comfortable and without queuing
