The Carregal Garden was built in 1897 and is two steps away from the movida area. It is considered by some to be the ultimate Romantic Garden of Porto with nineteenth-century features. The garden distinguishes itself from other similar green spaces for its beautiful and meandering central lake, which is crossed by a bridge and surrounded by shady trees. Its conifers such as cedars, redwoods and araucarias recall mountain forests. At one end of the garden, visitors are welcomed by the sculpture of Abel Salazar by Helder Carvalho. Salazar was a doctor, teacher, researcher, and artist, and gave his name to one of the institutes of the University of Porto. The Hospital de Santo António is right by this garden and you can visit the National Museum Soares dos Reis which is also close-by.
