Jardim Afonso de Albuquerque
Gardens, Parks and Forests
With approximately 2 hectares located in Belém, the central feature is a monument to Afonso de Albuquerque, Governor of Portuguese India from 1507 to 1515, by the sculptor Costa Mota, with a neo-Manueline base by the architect Silva Pinto.
The layout was remodelled for the occasion of the Portuguese World Exhibition in 1940, resulting in its present shape laid out around the four fountains attributed to the sculptor Barata Feyo.
