Located at the back of the Palace of Justice, the Virtudes Garden allows an excellent view over the Douro River and the grand Alfândega do Porto building.
In this place you can find the tallest Ginkgo Balboa in Portugal (about 35 meters). The female Ginkgo, used for medicinal purposes, was one of the first species to resist to Hiroshima atomic bomb.
The Passeio das Virtudes, close to Virtudes Garden, is another green area to relax and enjoy a beautiful view of the Douro river at sun set. Cooperativa Árvore, a gallery and stage of different cultural activities, is located here.
In the summer time, usually there are outdoor activities at the weekend afternoon.
