This Saturday was marked the International Day for Monuments and Sites. For the first time, in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic, the date was marked online with visits to spaces and virtual exhibitions, presentations, films and other activities at monuments and sites across the country.
On its official Facebook page, the Lisbon City Council invites you to visit the cultural spaces of the capital without leaving the couch. And you have a lot to choose from, from Castelo de S. Jorge, to the Museu Nacional do Azulejo, to the Palácio da Cidadela de Cascais, or to the Teatro Nacional de São Carlos.
The International Day for Monuments and Sites, it should be noted, is celebrated annually to raise awareness of the conscious enjoyment and preservation of heritage. This year, the Directorate-General for Cultural Heritage, national coordinator of the initiative, in collaboration with ICOMOS Portugal, invited all those interested in heritage to join this celebration through the program created ‘online’.
