Cultour

Guided visits by architects to architectural works

Tours

Portugal is a country of history.

Lost in the westernmost edge of Europe and embraced by the sea.

A blue sea, strong and vigorous. Portugal is a country in transition.

Without ruptures, there still are artisanal ways of living, while other more global speeches are being integrated.

Many of the works of architecture born of intense dialogue with the past, accept the challenges of memory and heredity become magical spaces.

Come wander in landscape architecture, enjoy the vastness of the horizon, the hardness of stone, of different intensities of green and find little pearls in the world of interiority.
