República Garden

República Garden occupies the main square of the town of Velas, a place where the local market was once located. This garden is delimited by low walls with a superior railing, beds of varied forms, shrub and some trees. The center has a bandstand.

The garden is in the center of a building envelope and integrated in a space that does not give you any chance to grow. It benefits, however, from an excellent architectural framework of the urban buildings that it has around. Of these buildings stand out the building of the Town Hall, one of the maximum examples of the baroque island in the island of São Jorge. On the opposite side of this, stands the velense Philharmonic Society building, boasting its Art Deco façade characteristic of the twenties and thirties of the 20th century, with a strong coloration, with wide fenestrations among stylized decorative elements of the beaux artian tradition.
