The program runs between 10 am and 5 pm, with offers for the whole family, who can also take the opportunity to visit the Parque das Águas, where you can find ancient fountains and fountains of the city and the best of urban art by three of the best graffiti artists in Porto.

The historian Germano Silva is the host of the guided tour included in the programme, with visitors taking advantage to participate in musical activities, workshops and sports (see full programme below).

To participate, prior registration is not required. Registrations are made on the day, close to the time scheduled for each session, with the organizers of the workshops and through the available vacancies. The guided tour has no limit of participants and anyone present at the appointed time may participate.
