Resulting from the challenge launched by the Municipality of Silves to André Boto – a photographer of recognized national and international merit, born in Silves – the Igreja da Misericórdia hosts, from 4 to 30 September, the photographic exhibition «Silves, da Serra ao Mar».
This is a photographic project to revitalize the image of the municipality, which will serve as the basis for the Municipality’s photographic bank and which covers, in the fifty records collected, a diverse range of photographic typologies, including architectural photography. and interiors, landscape, photojournalism, among others.
Through this photographic set we can get to know, in the true sense of the term, Silves da Serra ao Mar, on a journey that takes us to know more about the corners in the mountains, but also, about other places that mediate our route to the sea, with dams, diversified historical heritage, cultural facilities, typical places and streets and some of our main economic activities, so intrinsically related to orange and Silves wines.
The Municipality of Silves invites you to experience the municipality of Silves, from Serra to Mar, discovering the countless treasures to be found and the many stories to be discovered. We are sure you will enjoy this trip!
