Parque da Devesa (Devesa Park)


Vila Nova de Famalicão has gained an additional tourist attraction of quality in the Parque da Devesa. Already recognised as the region’s lung, it is virtually an oasis extended for 27 hectares of green area where it’s possible to breathe the clean outdoor air of nature. And other proposals didn’t wait long to appear: here one can practice a wide range of sports, play with the children, make picnics, watch cultural shows or just walk, contemplate or rest in the shade of trees. The eco-corridor is valued by the existence of a forest of maples, is crossed by a river currently free of pollution, the sculpture "Verticalidade", the restaurant and cafeteria, educational services, amphitheater, house of territory, the reconstruction of the pre-roman bathes, the milestone, the mill, the sculpture "Surge et Ambula", the lake, the small bridge of Antas, the gate of the “Quinta de Vilar” (farm) and the urban vegetable gardens.Thematic panels provide information on the fauna, flora and heritage of the park and visitors have at their disposal a new digital instrument that allows them to make guided tours, to their personal rhythm. The audioguide for smartphones and tablets reveals the history and identity of several sites in six different languages, along 15 posts, promoting cultural knowledge and interest.
