The NOVA School of Sagres, a project of the Centro Ciência Viva de Lagos, returns to Fortaleza de Sagres, on the 3rd, 4th and 5th, with playful-pedagogical activities for schools and the community.

This is the fifth edition of the project that promotes the exploration of a set of educational and scientific workshops, of a practical nature, ranging from the construction of a caravel, to the exploration of navigation instruments, to the measurement of time, robotics and programming, between others.

This year, some novelties are being prepared, such as the creation of a “Map without Borders”, where Sagres will be the center of the World, as well as “Histórias Contadas” which always presents a new story.

The 3rd and 4th of November will be entirely dedicated to the participation of the school community. Saturday, the 5th, from 14:00 pm to 17:30 pm, the NOVA School of Sagres is aimed at families and the general public.

Admission to the activities is free, but subject to prior appointment via email: [email protected]

Sunday, the 6th, at 11:00 am, the Roman Ruins of Milreu host the “Fábulas de Fedro – Yesterday, Today and Always”, a project promoted by ARCA – Associação Recreativa e Cultural do Algarve.

“Fábulas de Fedro – Yesterday, Today and Always” is a multidisciplinary show that crosses music and sand animation with the narratives of the Roman fabulist Fedro, with traditional tales told over various eras and generations by the Algarve population. The association intends to create an approximation to the stories that were told in the times of the Romans' passage through the territory, where the ruins of Milreu are located, making an intersection with stories from the traditional imagination.

The cast consists of Pilar Puyana, sand animator, Fernando Guerreiro, narrator, and the São Brás de Alportel Philharmonic Band, conducted by maestro Albano Neto.

Entrance is free, although subject to appointment through this link.
