An exciting new journal in English has been prepared and will be launched at various events during May and June. The Journal will share Portuguese research on gardens and landscapes, relevant case studies and also highlight Portuguese garden history.

The Journal is an international publication which will be available online. There are some of the worlds leading landscape and garden designers involved in the production and in the review of articles and submissions.

The first issue includes articles on Portuguese garden sculpture and contributions from  landscape architects from Portugal and the USA. The Algarve is represented by an article on the management of a native plant garden in a tourist resort. There is also an article on the gardens of  the Fronteira Palace in Lisbon by Gerald Luckhurst of Sintra.

The new magazine Gardens and Landscapes of Portugal is supported by The Centro de História da Arte e Investigação Artística (CHAIA) of the University of Évora, the Centro de História d’Além-Mar (CHAM) of the Faculdade de Ciências Sociais e Humanas of the New University of Lisbon (FCSH/UNL) and the Mediterranean Garden Society, Portugal branch.
