History

Opened on 8 June 1940, Portugal dos Pequenitos in Coimbra is a recreational-educational park intended primarily for children.

Founded by the genius Bissaya Barreto and designed by architect Cassiano Branco, in 1959 the park became part of the Bissaya Barreto Foundation, sponsored by this illustrious professor.

As a living portrait of the Portuguese way and of Portuguese presence in the world, Portugal dos Pequenitos is still today a historical and educational reference for many generations.

Besides bringing together cultures and peoples, Portugal dos Pequenitos also stands out as a high-quality display of sculptures and architectural art, the miniature size and detail of which continues to charm children, youth and adults.
