Patrão Joaquim Lopes Garden

It is a green and recreational area situated near the Ria Formosa, being inaugurated in 1967 and where we can find the monument dedicated to Patrão Joaquim Lopes, an olhanense who has distinguished himself by his bravery, having made numerous rescues of shipwrecks. Here, near the place where the boats that make the crossing to the islands of Ria Formosa (Culatra, Armona and Farol) are taken, the sea and the history of the golden times are combined.


With a beautiful view over the Ria, this garden has different tree species, making it a nice place to rest and to socialize.
