Porto: Art in the park

Whether or not you're a fan of contemporary art, you can't fail to be won over by Porto's contemporary art gallery, Serralves. The gallery itself features two temporary exhibitions at a time, but for me, Serralves' real appeal lies outdoors.


Set in a vast park 4km outside the city centre, the Serralves Foundation is home to an outdoor sculpture collection, a pink art deco mansion, formal gardens, wild woodlands, a lake and a farm featuring species from northern Portugal. Well worth half a day's exploration, it's a slice of contemporary cool with a side of countryside in suburban Porto.
