It was with plenty of heat and some thunder that “Cibos (pieces) of the Barroso land”, Boticas’ first tourism and nature festival, took place last weekend (June 12th and 13th).
THE FESTIVAL AIMS TO BE A SHOWCASE OF WHAT THE BARROSO REGION CAN OFFER.
In the event that aims to be a showcase of what the Barroso region can offer, visitors were able to participate in a range of activities spread across the 60 hectares of Boticas Parque. From horseback riding, buggy rides, climbing, rappel, traditional games, to workshops and an obstacle course organized by Scornio that brought hundreds of enthusiasts to Boticas Parque.
The visitors could also participate in Tai Chi and Yoga classes, visit the Little Market space and get to know some of the regional gastronomic specialties with the actors Afonso Vilela and Mafalda Teixeira.
