Barca da Amieira no Tejo, Vale do Ocreza, Barragem da Pracana and Zimbreira are four places located along the 7,5 km intervention area approximately 2,5 km apart. Each place defines a special nucleus with its different specifications of cultural and scenic heritage.
A pedestrian route along the riverbanks was the starting point of this proposal and the unifying element of the project.
While walking through this land the observer enjoys of a real time that enables one to interpret the natural and cultural processes of the construction of this landscape. This time also enables a gradual comprehension of the reason and origins of the Ocreza River’s engravings and well as the name of all things.
A contemporary “reading” of a landscape, that contains all periods of time.
