Côa - Corredor das Artes
Organised by Rewilding Portugal, the 1st edition of the festival Côa - Corredor das Artes will be held on the 5 weekends of July in 5 different locations of the Great Côa Valley: Sabugal, Faia Brava Natural Reserve - Figueira de Castelo Rodrigo, Pinhel, Côa Museum - Vila Nova de Foz Côa and in the Historical Village of Almeida. The festival seeks to connect artists with communities in a natural environment, the Great Côa Valley, in order to co-create art pieces that melt into the landscape.
Happenning in Vale Carapito
Vale Carapito will showcase the artistic residence of the Brazilian contemporary artist Marcelo Moscheta. All the artistic interventions in the landscape will be made of natural elements that will naturally decay. The Côa - Corredor das Artes Festival is an inspiring event of a truly sustainable art festival integrated in the surrounding nature!
Happening in Ermo das Águias
The Swiss artist Gaspard Combes, with the contribution of Rui Marques (Rewilding Portugal), developed in Ermo das Águias rewilding area, his work, "Homo Stabilis". This work pays tribute to the strong connection that the municipality of Pinhel has with this natural and resistant material that is granite, through the representation of these three human figures.
Happening in Paul de Toirões
A photo tour will be held on July 10th at 10 a.m. and will be guided by Fernando Romão, an experienced guide and a deep connaisseur of the Great Côa Valley. An unique opportunity to experience the sheer beauty of the surrounding region! A true oasis of wildlife.
Happening in Côa Museum
Opened in 2010, the Côa Museum allows you to discover the best art collection in the valley through replicas of the original engravings and interactive information, which uses modern digital technology, as well as guided tours to the valley with specialised guides.
Happening in Faia Brava Natural Reserve
Antony Lyons will develop a piece of art made with natural materials that respect its decay in the landscape, but that will be a real building that pays tribute and gives new life (artistic) to the dovecotes of the region. The piece will stay at the Faia Brava Reserve, partner of this initiative.
Happening in the Historical Village of Almeida
A magical event that will be held on July 7th at 21:30 consisting of a night guided visit to the stunning manor house Solar de São João, mixing traditional Portuguese music and wine tasting.
