Guided Visit to Casa de Chá da Boa Nova + Piscina das Marés
Can you imagine a building that at times hides and at other times reveals itself among rocks in close articulation with the sea? This is one of the most emblematic works by architect Álvaro Siza. Classified as a National Monument, the Casa de Chá da Boa Nova is one of the architect's earliest works, and has become an ex libris on international architecture tours.

A sensory labyrinth that leads us to a swimming pool inserted in the natural landscape. A route that begins as an element of urban landscape and culminates in the unavoidable Piscina das Marés. Siza designs two salt water tanks, defined by the rocks previously existing in the place, joined by concrete planes. A unique experience of a relationship with the sea in its fullness.

The visit will be attended by the architect Francisca Magalhães Ramalho, responsible for the project.

Guided Visit to Casa da Arquitectura
Casa da Arquitectura occupies the now recovered and adapted buildings that integrated the old manufacturing facility built between 1897 and 1901 by the company Menéres & Companhia, destined to the Real Companhia Vinícola.

Resistant to the progressive industrial transformation and residential occupation of the place, its preservation and adaptation is due to its high patrimonial and cultural value.
