Pure air and a space for leisure
This area, dating back to the thirteenth century, was donated to the Porto Municipality for the construction of a hospital. The construction never took place, but Quinta do Covelo is now an ideal place to breathe fresh air and do sport activities.
This 8-hectare area is one of the favorite places for many people to run, cycle or entertain their children in a large playground.
The estate belonged to a nobleman, who later sold it to the merchant Manuel Jose do Covelo. It changed ownership again in the 1930s and ended up in the hands of the municipality, so that a hospital for tuberculosis could be built there.
The work was never completed and the vast landscaped area has pine trees and cork oaks, and boasts a space that invites leisure, a cafeteria, dirty-jump / BTT track and an Environmental Education Center.
