The Espaço Padre Fontes (Father Fontes Space) is one of the constituent poles of the project Ecomuseu de Barroso, constituted by several poles scattered territorially by the municipalities of Boticas and Montalegre.

Its aim is to provide a perception of the unique identity of each place and of the various forms that the inhabitants of Barroso have had and must interact with their territorial and cultural environment.

Here, the visitor has the first contact with the different realities that make up the region, which is intended to be the appetizer for exploration in loco.  Watching dozens of documentaries on local ethnography, find more than a thousand points of interest in a three-dimensional model, visit rooms about the territory, people, daily life and life cycles.


Every day between 10h00 and 13h00 and between 14h00 and 18h00
