With Lezíria and Tejo as a backdrop, appears Vila Franca de Xira, also the cradle of neo-realism in Portugal, thanks to Alves Redol and his inaugural work “Gaibéus”. Through this tour, you will get to know the route and the reference places linked to the movement and the authors, complementing, whenever possible, with references to poems and excerpts from their emblematic books. Of course, a visit to the city’s ex-libris is essential: the museum of neo-realism, unique in Europe and perhaps in the rest of the world, and a stroll through the Tagus river on the boat “Liberdade”, stage of many gatherings and moments of leisure among writers, painters, and intellectuals in times of dictatorship. Combine that with a wine from the region and some typical cookies will be even better!
