Educational Service - Rota do Românico

In the lands of the Sousa, Douro and Tâmega valleys there is an important Romanesque legacy. Pillar of a cultural and territorial identity, this legacy must be understood, experienced and valued by its community.
Raising the citizens' awareness of the issue of historical, architectural, cultural and landscape heritage, drawing their attention to the importance of preserving their resources, is a relevant way to integrate, educate and train the population.
In order to do so, through its Educational Service, the Route of the Romanesque aims to become a key instrument for the construction of a broad heritage education project capable of disseminating and valuing the extensive historical legacy of this territory.
We believe that the interactive involvement of the community, through leisure and pedagogical activities within an educational, cultural and social context, generates further interest in history and local heritage, promotes pride in the past and contributes to the development of new knowledge and skills.
