  • Educating for ecology;
  • Providing moments of experimentation and exploration essential to learning.

Sports plan

  • Promoting physical activity in direct contact with Nature;
  • Associating the practice of sports with didactic activities.

Social Plan

  • Encouraging interaction between the inhabitants of the village and the general population;
  • Moving different types of public from the municipality and from other municipalities in the country;
  • Promoting exchanges.

Aldeia Viva Activities

Fresh Cheese Workshop

The visitors can try their hand at milking the goats and then participate in the whole process of making the cheese in an artisanal fashion. At the end, they can savour and share the wonderful taste of fresh goat’s cheese.

Bread workshop in a wood-fired oven

Using different recipes and different flours, participants will make different types of bread. In this workshop, they will also learn how to heat the oven, check when it is hot, clean it and “pour in” the bread.

Prices vary according to the number of visitors per group and the desired workshops. For further information or to make an appointment, please contact the Residents’ Association on 931 146 419.
