Scientific dissemination associated with Geology and Mines and the use of the development of potential territories related with extractive activities, are among the objectives of the Route of Mines and Points of Mining and Geological Interest in Portugal, promoted by the General Directorate of Energy and Geology (DGEG), EDM – Empresa de Desenvolvimento Mineiro S.A., and more than four dozen other entities that joined together for this purpose.

In this context, between March 18th and 24th 2024, throughout the entire territory of the continent and the Autonomous Region of the Azores, the 2024 “Route of Mines and Points of Mining and Geological Interest in Portugal” will take place.

During this week, a set of programmed activities developed by each partner, will provide diverse and unique experiences for all of those interested, such as:

– Special and exclusive visits to different geological or mining interest sites;

– Guided tours and access to museum assets;

– Visit to mining galleries, from ancient Roman times to current in operation;

– Pedagogical laboratories and other experimental activities for younger children,

among several other activities that allow citizens to recognize, know, identify, and preserve, with great awareness and interest, a component as important as Geodiversity in the national territory, and which has so much to offer.

Among the events that will be held, some are also part of the “Discovering Industrial Tourism” initiative, promoted by the Facilitating Group of the Portuguese Industrial Tourism Network (Grupo Dinamizador da Rede Portuguesa de Turismo Industrial), which are scheduled to take place in the last March fortnight.
