We cross over to the Algarve, the most desired secret in Europe, and arrive in Portimão, where on the 6th of December, for the second consecutive year, we will hold an incredible Race of the Mediterranean Diet, Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. Here, next to fascinating beaches that seem more like an unbelievable dream, we are faced with a city inhabited since Neolithic times that presents strong vestiges of Roman civilization. But it is in modern times that it has shown all its strength, dynamics and attractiveness. Located in the heart of the Algarve, it is one of the most sought after destinations in the world, for its paradisiacal beaches, pleasant climate and welcoming people.

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 .
