Heritage Carers - Intergenerational Meetings


During the month of October, the Route of the Romanesque promoted meetings between six Heritage Carers and students from nearby schools.

In a different class, the Carers shared memories, emotions, and advice. The services they regularly perform at the Route's monuments were also a topic of conversation.

Mrs. Aurora Leite, carer of the Church of Aveleda, was at the Dr. Mário Fonseca School Group, in Lousada, with the 11th A class, on 8 October.

Professor Manuel Dias, carer of the Church of Boelhe, visited the Penafiel Sudeste School Group, in Cabeça Santa, and the 6th E and 9th F classes, on 11 October.

Mrs. Teresa Sampaio, carer of the Monastery of Pombeiro, visited the D. Manuel de Faria e Sousa School Group, in Felgueiras, for a chat with the 8th B class, on 12 October.

Mr. Belmiro Barros, carer of the Church of Saint Nicholas, met with the 10th F and 11th F classes of the Marco de Canaveses Secondary School, on 21 October.

Mrs. Lurdes Remuge, carer of the Church of Tarouquela, in Cinfães, met the 4th-grade students of the local School Centre, on 22 October.

Mrs. Rosa Carvalho (Rosinha), carer of the Monastery of Travanca, in Amarante, had a chat with the 4th-grade class of the school where she works, the Acácio Lino Basic School, on 22 October.
