The Guardian elects Cantinho das Aromáticas as Porto's olfactory delight

Cantinho das Aromáticas were recommended in the most prestigious British newspaper, The Guardian.

“Porto is famous for its eponymous wines. By all means, go stick your nose into a glass or three of the strong stuff. But don’t leave without checking out one of the city’s lesser-known olfactory treats. On an elevated plot over the Rio Douro, in Vila Nova de Gaia, sit the fragrant fields and nurseries of Cantinho das Aromáticas. From just 2½ hectares, this beautiful organic farm manages to produce a whopping 150 or so different plant species. 

Visitors are invited to wander along the neat rows of aromatic flowers, medicinal plants and kitchen herbs. (Don’t worry about the kids: the farm’s stone dovecote makes for the perfect playground). For those wanting to get their hands dirty, opportunities also exist to volunteer. At the end of the visit, enjoy one of the farm’s freshly plucked infusions (two of these won two stars at the 2017 Great Taste Awards) in the well-stocked café-cum-shop. The farm’s 50-plus products include bee glue extract (€9.60), extra virgin olive oil (€6.90-€38.00) and various fruit and floral liqueurs (from €10)”.

Cantinho das Aromáticas is one of the few urban organic farming projects in Europe. As professional farmers, we have been producing various species of aromatic, medicinal and spice plants for 16 years, which we sell in the form of infusions, herbal teas and condiments, which are multi-award-winning internationally.

Open to the public throughout the year, free or guided visits to the productive garden and the shop / house of infusions are increasingly sought after by national and international visitors. The current Tripadvisor rating mirrors this:

In 2018, we hope to continue to impress visitors, with our dazzling and perfumed productive gardens and with the extraordinary infusions and herbal teas produced here, with love and passion.
