Prayer Facilities

Muslim tourists will not be able to find prayer facilities at the Crystal Palace Gardens. They will however be able to find a secluded place within the park, to offer their prayers. If unable to do so, the city of Porto is known to house a couple of mosques and Islamic Centres, such as the Centro Cultural Islamico do Porto.

Halal Food

There is a cafeteria within the Crystal Palace Gardens. While visitors will be able to find a variety of snacks and refreshments here, the items will not be Halal certified. Muslim tourists can therefore either dine on suitable vegetarian and seafood options found here, or they can ask to be directed to one of the few Halal restaurants in Porto.
