Abstract: Urban greening has been widely recognised as a key factor to mitigate the adverse effects of urbanisation in a sustainable manner [1]. Green spaces characteristics include trees, soft surfaces and wind shelters that can influence thermal sensations by inducing changes in such variables as solar radiation, temperatures of surrounding surfaces, air temperature, humidity and wind speed [2,3]. As part of the ongoing research entitled GreenUrbe (PPCDT/AMB/59174/2004), both users surveys and structured experiments are being developed, trying to establish relation between green spaces characteristics and thermal comfort. The city of Bragança is located in north-eastern Portugal. Local climate is characterised by a cold rainy winter and relatively short (June to September) hot and dry summer.
