Jardim João Chagas, generally known as Jardim da Cordoaria (Rope-Makers Garden), due to the rope-makers that worked there, dates back to 1924 and is close to Torre dos Clérigos and Hospital Geral de Santo António.

It is triangular in shape and has trees that have been officially classified as being of Public Interest. Many people consider it to be a place of art, as there are a number of sculptures throughout this garden. An amusing statue is one that portrays thirteen human figures and is called 'Treze a rir uns dos outros', meaning 'Thirteen people laughing at one another', a work by the sculptor from Madrid, Juan Muñoz, which was installed in 2001, when Porto was the European Capital of Culture.
