Parque das Merendas

Parque das Merendas

(Picnic Park)

In view of the fact that in the Parque das Merendas there is a small greenhouse with many species of aromatic plants, the Sintra Town Council decided to turn this area into an exhibition of aromatic and medicinal plants, providing information on their diversity, properties, uses and legends. New plants have been introduced, and posters placed to help identify the various species.

After being closed for six years, during which it was completely renovated, the Parque das Merendas reopened on July 5, 2005 – World Environment Day, - and can again be enjoyed by all those who appreciate the green beauty of the SintraMountain.

With its entrance located at the beginning of the Pena Road, the Parque das Merendas has 3,5 forested hectares. Infesting species such as the acacia and the pittosporum are now under control.
