The last day of our meeting was devoted to a trip around interesting places around Seixal. We saw a wall of artists painted with scenes from traditional crafts, which include grain processing. In the open-air museum we could see how grain was grinding in earlier times on hand mills.

Next, we went with the camera to the Corroios wetlands, which are home to many animals and birds, e.g. flamingos, and are an important part of the entire ecosystem.

Across the sea we headed to the town of Almada, which in the Middle Ages was an Arab military base and was then conquered by Alfonso I and the English Crusaders. At present, the city is very modern. Water city is a new neighborhood that was recently built here and offers a relaxation zone, business premises and living in a unique environment that is close to the Tagus River and the sea. Almada is connected to Lisbon by the 25th Bridge. April.

During the virtual trip, we also visited the Coast of Caparica, amazing sandy beaches of 26 km, the Arrábida Nature Park, where the blue ocean meets the whiteness of chalk cliffs and the depth of green vegetation.

The trip ended in setúbal, a 20th-century fishing centre focused on sardines hunting and processing. Setúbal sardines still hold the first place as the most popular and most arduous.

In the second part of Friday’s meeting, the pupils filled out a questionnaire in the Menti app, and we and other teachers planned future meetings and work on the project.
