ON SITE – PARQUE DE S. ROQUE, PORTO

PORTO_S_ROQUE_CONSERVATORY

Today we went to the Parque de S. Roque and found this little gem of a “conservatory” clad in textured glass and in an unusual apsidal shape. Throughout the park there is also a hedge maze and several other Romantic features like concrete railings imitating twisted twigs, a grotto, artificial lake and several platforms where to take on the views. The house, alas, is in a sad state today, but still has some wonderful architectural features that we will document later on.
