XI Guimarães Camellia Exhibition

The municipality of Guimarães, in partnership with the Landscape Laboratory, the Portuguese Camellia Association /ICS – Portugal and the Paço dos Duques – Museums and Monuments of Portugal, is promoting the 11th Guimarães Camellia Exhibition, to be held on 24 and 25 February.

This exhibition aims to publicise and enhance the natural heritage of camellias and is therefore an opportunity to discover a little more about this species, also known as the “japonica rose” or “japoneira”, which is considered by many to be the most admirable flower in our gardens.
