Porto was the first European city to be known pas the "City of Camellias". It is through Porto that these flowers with history, originally from Asia, are introduced in the north of Portugal and in Galicia in the 19th century.

Camellias can be found in almost every garden and green space of the city, in public spaces, in cemeteries, in houses. In order to know more about this entire universe, we invite you to visit the sites signed on this route and thus admire closely these flowers that bring colour and life to the city from October to April.
