O Festival Internacional de Jardins localiza-se em Ponte de Lima, na margem direita do rio Lima.

Tem uma área de cerca de 2,5 ha e organiza-se em quatro espaços: o estacionamento, a zona das piscinas e bar, a zona do parque de lazer e contemplação e a zona definida por Festival Internacional de Jardins, com 12 espaços distintos em forma e em área. Uma pérgula metálica coberta de trepadeiras estende-se ao longo deste espaço e separa a zona dos 12 canteiros do espaço de lazer e piscinas.

A ramada e as fruteiras que já existiam foram mantidas, proporcionando aos visitantes mais sombra, tornando este espaço ainda mais acolhedor a quem o visita.

O Festival Internacional de Jardins é um evento anual que abre as suas portas ao público na última sexta-feira do mês de Maio e encerra a 31 de Outubro. Entre Novembro e Maio, desmontam-se os jardins e prepara-se a nova edição com toda a azáfama da construção.

A selecção dos jardins é realizada por um Júri e ocorre após um concurso internacional. Qualquer pessoa pode concorrer independentemente da sua idade, profissão ou nacionalidade. O que é importante é a criatividade dos autores e a expressão de ideias inovadoras.

Obteve o prémio de Festival Internacional de Jardins do Ano de 2013 no âmbito do Prémio Garden Tourism Awards, intergrado no evento internacional “2013 North American Garden Tourism Conference”, em Toronto – Canadá. Nomeação para os Prémios Novo Norte na categoria Norte Criativo, iniciativa conjunta da Comissão de Coordenação da Região Norte e Jornal de Notícias.

It has an area of about 2,5 ha and is organized into four areas: the parking area, the pool and bar area, the recreation and contemplation zone and the area defined as the International Garden Festival with 12 distinct spaces in shape and area. A metal pergola, covered with clinging plants, extends throughout this space and separates the zone of 12 flowerbeds of leisure and pools.

Fruit plants, clinging plants and vines that existed were kept offering visitors more shade, making this space even more welcoming to those who visit.

From November to May, the gardens are dismantled and the new edition is prepared with all the bustle of construction.

  • This is a collection of small gardening arrangements, combining horticulture with art. Very pleasant walk for 1 euro, on the river Bank as well.

  • If you are here when this is on, do visit. The park is divided up into small gardens and each organisation taking part works within the set theme with some really original results. Entry is cheap...

  • Really liked the Festival, is the second time going there. The creativity of the participants is definitely something which stands out. I like the peace and quiet of the garden when there is not a lot of people visiting.
  • Really nice park and gardening exhibition that was a pleasant surprise during our visit to Ponte de Lima. It is a green oasis full of wine, fruits, flowers and greenery, just a very well-kept, tranquil and peaceful place. There is also a competition about the design of small plots with international contributions, along with short explanations about the creators and the ideas behind the garden. Visitors can cast their vote which plot they liked best. The whole place is not that big (if you are from Germany, do not expect something like "Landesgartenschau", this is much smaller) but charming and we enjoyed our visit a lot.
