The first public presentation of the photographic exhibition Heritage Carers, by Luís Barbosa, took place on 24 October 2021 at the Interpretation Centre of the Romanesque in Lousada. The exhibition includes 37 portraits, spread over 25 panels.

On 11 November 2022, the Route of the Romanesque launched the photographic album of the same name, with more than 300 images, whose aesthetics highlight the complicity between the carer and his monument, in a balanced dialogue of light and shadow. A work of faces, gestures and emotions, but also a unique record of the architectural and artistic particularities of the built heritage of the Route of the Romanesque.

Luís Barbosa was born in Porto in 1975, and since 2001 he has been framing everyday life in photographic images more intensely. After completing his course at the Portuguese Institute of Photography (Porto), in 2003, he has been working as a freelancer and, since 2007, he has been a trainer at that institution.

The Route of the Romanesque has established 18 October as Heritage Carer day. First celebrated in 2020, this unprecedented initiative in Portugal aims to honour all those who, in a dedicated and unconditional way, look after and cherish our monuments, also constituting an invaluable living memory of the place.

The project Heritage Carers was one of the 11 winners of the 'European Heritage Days Stories 2020' competition, promoted by the Council of Europe and the European Commission. In May 2022, won the TRANSROMANICA and APOM (Innovation and Creativity category) prizes.
