78th Monthly Meeting of Classic Vehicles April 3, 2022 (Sunday) – 10:00 am The next Monthly Meeting of Classic Vehicles, promoted by our Club and the Parish Council of Armação de Pêra, takes place between 10:00 and 13:00, in the area of the former Mini-Golf, in Armação de Pêra. This initiative, which is repeated on the 1st Sunday of each month, is an excellent opportunity to closely review vehicles that are part of the history of the last century and that their owners keep in excellent condition. The location of the usual fraternization lunch will be announced later. This car had been drawn for match no. 76, but its owner could not make this commitment at that time due to the unfortunate death of family members. We hope that this meeting is a show of the vitality of the Classics and that we can count on as many people as possible to attend this event.

The Castle Tower of Silves hosts, between April 12 and July 10, the photography exhibition “Time Lapses – In the Algarve, a Parar o Tempo”, by João António Fazenda. The exhibition portrays images of an Algarve, fleeting and changeable, real or dreamed but always beautiful, captured by the photographer, with his eyes, with his underlying imaginary, also marked by the passing of time. According to the author, an Algarve photographer, “to photograph is to make a cut in time; it is, in a way, to stop it, the instant the camera’s shutter is released. The resulting images are pieces of time that are retained in them.” The exhibition takes place as part of the commemorations of the International Day for Monuments and Sites. Enjoy the heritage and discover the magnificent images of João António Fazenda.
