Poets Park

The Poets Park is the result of the commitment to honor national poetry and across borders, literary heritage of international recognition.
On its 22.5 hectares, Poets Park has 60 poets represented - 50 Portuguese and 10 Portuguese speaking countries or territories.
 

 

The Poets Park arises from the dream of witnessing the creation of a great urban park in Oeiras, associating poetry and sculptural art in the same space, in a tribute to Portuguese culture.
From dream to reality, Poets' Park took shape and became unique.

In the three phases divided all along the 22.5 hectares between the urban centers of Paço de Arcos and Oeiras, it has statuary works of more than 40 sculptors, representing 60 poets from different literary periods.
On June 7, 2003, the first phase of the project was inaugurated, with the first ten hectares. The sculptures, allusive to the 20 poets of the 20th century, are authored by Francisco Simões.
In 2013, another seven hectares more are added with poets from the Troubadours to the Renaissance.
The connection between the all phases is completed in June 2015 with the addition of 17 other poets from the Baroque period (18th century) to the poets of the Romantic (19th century) and 10 poets representing the Portuguese culture or speaking countries or territories.

Poets Park is a multifaceted venue, since it concentrates in the same enclosure, cultural, sporting and environmental activities.
With a breathtaking view over the river and the Atlantic, a vastness of blue over the green assumes a gigantic proportion, offering a panorama of great beauty.
The Temple of Poetry, the Labyrinth, the Island of Loves or the Cyber Fountains are a part of the countless possibilities of visit and delight that the Poets' park has to offer.
