Heritage Carers - Photographic Exhibition

25-10-2021


The Route of the Romanesque has on display at the Interpretation Centre of the Romanesque , in Lousada, a photographic exhibition dedicated to its Heritage Carers.

The inauguration took place on the afternoon of Sunday, 24 October, and was attended by several of the Carers in the photos, accompanied by family and friends, in a pleasant get-together.

The photos, by Luís Barbosa, highlight, in an intimate tone, the affectionate relationships that unite these people of various ages to the 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 exhibition is open from Tuesday to Sunday, between 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m., until 30 January, 2022.

The Route of the Romanesque has established 18 October as Heritage Carer day. First celebrated in 2020, and already repeated this year, 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.

These actions are part of the project Heritage Carers, one of the 11 winners of the 'European Heritage Days Stories 2020' competition, promoted by the Council of Europe and the European Commission.
