What is the Mediterranean Diet? The exhibition answers this question by showing its multiple dimensions: the concept of cultural space and ancient Mediterranean lifestyle, an intangible cultural heritage passed down from generation to generation and its social and religious aspects, sacred foods and their symbologies, the products of the sea and land that support a diet of excellence recognized by the WHO – World Health Organization. The central focus is the territory and the multiple heritage of Tavira, the testimonies of the presence of civilizations of Antiquity, the cultural landscapes and products of the Ria Formosa, the productions of the barrocal and the mountains, the festivities and cultural practices that underlie the choice of Tavira as a representative community of Portugal in the application of the Mediterranean Diet to Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity presented in March 2012 at UNESCO headquarters. Films produced under the transnational application are projected and a kitchen space is recreated for information and experimentation activities, learning how to prepare and prepare food and culinary traditions.

Vestiges of an ancient prehistoric settlement with megalithic funerary temples, built and used over several centuries, during the Chalcolithic period (3rd millennium B.C.), constituting a remarkable monumental ensemble. In the surroundings, natural cavities and crypts artificially excavated in the rock (hypogeus) were used, used at the same time as collective tombs. The monuments of the eastern grouping of the necropolis are museographed and can be visited. The monuments of the central tomb cluster are located on public grounds and are accessible to visitors. The remains of the Chalcolithic settlement and the other monuments are located on private properties, with access subject to the prior authorization of the respective owners.
Programmed as the main reference exhibition of the museum, occupying the industrial buildings of the previous factory building and spread over an area of about 1000 m2, “Portimão, Território e Identidade” represents a historical synthesis of the route designed by the local communities, since the pre -history to the present day, highlighting the most representative activities of economic, cultural and social life, divided into three routes.
The preserved industrial memory and the deep historical relationship with the Arade River and the Atlantic are the central themes of this route. Through it, the role of men and women in the most relevant economic activity in Portimão and the Algarve stands out, before the change to the new paradigm, the tourism industry. Departing from the factory space and in particular the refurbished “Casa de Descabeço”, the visitor is taken from the old auction room on the Portimão pier to the heart of the factories, following the process of manufacturing, packaging and promoting canned Portimão. It is divided into 5 cores: ** There is Fish on the Pier ** Between Whistles and “Mermaids” ** “Casa do Descabeço” ** Artes do Cheio, Artes do Voio ** Promotion – From Portimão to the World
In the former cistern at the Factory, where rainwater was collected and reused to feed the factory’s brine tanks and boilers, we now discover moving images of the underwater fauna and flora of the Arade River and the coastline of Portimão. In this same Cistern, in September 2013, the nucleus Ocean Revival – Portimão Underwater Park was installed, which made it possible for our visitors to follow on land what is going on underwater with the ships sunk about three miles from Praia de Alvor .

The Manuel Teixeira Gomes Secondary School group – Teatro da Caverna, was formed in the academic year 1993/94 as an extracurricular project. Integrating all students of Secondary Education who wish to experience theatrical expression, it has proved to be an important link between the school, the family and the community, since creating its own space in the cultural universe of the city of Portimão. Over the years, this project has contributed to the personal, school, civic and artistic training of young people and to the creation of a theater audience. Proof of this are the more than 20 shows presented over these 25 years of artistic activity, which, through photographs, setting notes, props, wardrobe and posters, guide the exhibition visitor through the intricacies of what was the group’s journey , in favor of education through art.
