Photo TR: Bracalandia (Penafiel, Portugal)


Recommended Posts

Finally, after 2 1/2 years the new Bracalandia is here! We were the 4th to enter the new park (not bad, LOL).

In new location in Penafiel near Porto. If you ask me the new location is way far better that the old one, now it's outside city limits located in a small hill with a small valley with lots of trees and green spaces. It's perfect. As you will see in the photos there is lot's of work to do, but the administration never hidded that fact from us.

13th March is also the birthday of my daughter and the staff have prepared some surprises for her, as you will see. By the way they're awesome!!!

In one or two years it will be a great place to invite Rob , Elisa and the rest of the team. Until then, nothing but wait.

After almost 3 hours by car we 're arrived in the park and this is what hapenned...

It looks like a nice little park with a ton of potential!

 

I'm sure we'll be back in Portugal again in the future and look forward to checking this place out!

thanks for sharing.

 

Before today I didn't know Portugal had any parks.

It has always struck me as odd that a city as big and as nice as Lisbon doesn't have its own major park

 

Unfortunately this park is not near Lisbon. It's almost 300km away, if you visit Porto you're ok to go there (about 30km). In Lisbon The only park we had was closed 7 or 8 years ago and until today there is nothing.

 

Cheers.
