Walk on the Trail of Jornaleiro + Lunch + Visit the Open Science Platform
The Jornaleiro trail was a trail used by the locals who went to work “on the road” in farms located in the Douro River Valley.
In this walk, Nature reveals itself in all its splendor from the chaos of granites more abrupt in Vilar de Amargo to the more bland and productive Douro of the farms.
During this course the participants will marvel at the wild nature in the Natural Park of the International Douro in perfect communion with farms and cultivated areas where the traditional pigeons house are the mark of the most recent history, and where the olive grove, the almond, and the vine confer a harmonious geometry revealed in unique and delicious products of the region.
Lunch will be served on the open science platform in Barca d’Alva with privileged views over the Douro.
After lunch participants are invited to visit the exhibition “Conversations with Planet Earth: Local Communities and Climate Change”.
A unique opportunity to relive old ways, enjoying the present and reflecting for a more sustainable future !!!
