Luego, visitamos el Castillo de Santa Maria de Feira y posteriormente visitamos la bodega situada a la orilla del río y dimos un paseo por la ciudad donde pudimos apreciar las vistas de los monumentos más significativos.
Por la mañana cogeremos un vuelo con destino a Madrid con la mente llenas de ideas y planes para el futuro del proyecto.
Wednesday 15th & Thursday 16th November
Today, as Portugal was affected by a teachers strike and school was closed, we enjoyed some cultural visits. First we listened to a speech from a representative of the social services in Santa Maria de Feira, who works directly with refugees who are in the process of integrating into the community and who gave us some interesting information about how the social services are involved.
Then we visited the Castle of Santa Maria de Feira, and afterwards we were received in the Mayors office by a representative who described to us the how the local government supports local schools and social services.
After this we were taken to the city of Oporto where we were able to visit the Port cellars on the riverside and walk around the town appreciating views of the most well known monuments.
In the morning we will catch a flight back to Madrid, minds full of ideas and plans for the future of the project.
