Big walk across Porto

I walked 14.9km today, according to my health app. I found interesting back streets as I walked to the Palacio Cristal gardens.

And views of the Duoro River and an interesting mix of old, new and under-construction.

This garden just about has it over formal gardens. I particularly liked the use of gumboots. There were chooks in a pen behind.

There were chooks in the gardens too:

Among the garden sculptures were peacocks, peahens and peachicks!

The Palacio Cristal itself was under renovation – as was the Historical Museum and the Bolhau Market. The gardens were pretty nice, however, with old trees and a lovely grandeur.

Even in the gardens there was no getting away from books. This mobile library was parked inside the gate.
