Walk A – Tour of the habitable sculptures “Starting Points”, by Maria Leal da Costa. Within approx. two hectares of the estate, four stops, four
stations for meditation tell a story, awakening the visitor’s senses to sounds, aromas, points of view, colors and contrasts of light. This “Land Art” (i.e.
work of art that interacts with the landscape) refers the visitor to issues of nature preservation.
The tour ends with a poem by Maria Helena Marques, reflecting on the return to one’s origins.
– Tour of “Sculptures in the Landscape”
, located in another area of the estate with distinct geomorphological characteristics, like
