This exotic botanical species can be enjoyed in many places throughout the city of Porto, including Porto Botanical Garden, Serralves Park, Gardens of Palácio de Cristal and Quinta Villar d'Allen. During lockdown, really one of the best ways to admire this queen flower is by watching the video that Porto City Hall Environment Department prepared for you.

Camellias take on a significant importance in Porto, where this flower blooms almost everywhere, making it a unique winter flower. The Invicta do reveres and celebrates this flowering plant since the first Camellia Exhibition in Porto, which was organised in 1984 at Mercado Ferreira Borges.
