Founded in 2002, Cantinho das Aromáticas is an organic farming farm that produces aromatic, medicinal and spice plants, in the same place where D. Pedro I and Dona Inês de Castro lived in the 14th century.

The farm has a botanical collection with more than 150 species of plants, including grenadiers, hedgehogs and bats, as well as a variety of birds and reptiles.

The visits cover the 2.5 hectares of open-air production, and pass through cultivated fields, gardens, greenhouses and drying areas.

Finally, they can buy one or more potted plants, as well as dried herbs for infusions and condiments; all this in Gaia, and with excellent access.

Don't miss this place with unique features in Western Europe!
