Visit to Quinta da Conceição (Park and Swimming Pool)

On Saturday, July 20, at 10:30 a.m., there will be a guided tour of Quinta da Conceição (Park and Swimming Pool). Book your place here
This municipal park, on the north bank of the Leça River, where the convent of Nossa Senhora da Conceição of the Order of São Francisco was located, was subject to improvements coordinated by the architect Fernando Távora, in the 1960s. This work, even if incomplete, serves as an example of his ability to solve problems related to topography, construction and landscape.
There, is also the swimming pool designed by the architect Álvaro Siza, carefully integrated into the morphology of the land, establishing a harmonious synergy between intimacy and exposure.
Addressing the relationships between the work of the master and the student, this is an opportunity to discover it in parallel, on a walk through a green space of great landscape quality.
