After the huge success of the first edition of Caminhadas com Arte (trans. Walks with Art), especially in the times in which we live, we realized that we could not let this programme and its concept end here.
Getting out of home, walking in nature, sharing experiences with people (in safety), and being able to interact and talk, are things that are needed and that fill the soul.
This time we have 9 hikes near the coast, in Aljezur, and 9 hikes in the Monchique’s highlands. Along the way, and with a small snack in between, we will talk about topics that suit all tastes: from philosophy to mathematics, from dance to economics, through history, journalism, apiculture, architecture, biochemistry, literature among many others.
A time to celebrate nature and share experiences.
In collaboration with Rota Vicentina.

Note:
Each person must, when booking their ticket, choose the speaker/path they want to take, taking into account the particularities of each one (theme, difficulty level, distance, language).
