RECOMMENDATIONS:
Outdoor performance with a moderate difficulty walk: we recommend comfortable waterproof shoes and clothes.

Not appropriate for persons with reduced mobility.
A fluent understanding of Portuguese is required for a full appreciation of this performance.
Now that the drama of fire has settled in our memory like a scar that we will always live with, it is possible to return to the medronho cycle in the places where it has not disappeared.
We return once again to our Romeo and Juliet from Monchique where we will have the presence of the four actors that make up this saga.
This time the narrative deals with the medronho picking that takes place in the middle of the mountains between medronho trees and explores the hard work of the harvest, with the songs and snacks that accompany this stage.
