At the edge of Portugal's largest natural park lies the 20 ha Dominio Vale do Mondego estate. The biodynamic farm produces Demeter certified olive oil and has a large vegetable garden, fruit & nut trees and vineyard for its own use. The estate functions as a Rural Cultural Centre where artists, poets, philosophers, entrepreneurs, students, young people, writers, musicians and theatre makers, farmers and nature conservationists feel at home. We offer a program with philosophical Convivia, a wide range of art workshops, the annual summer theatre festival ESTIVAL and residencies for Artists. The activities take place in the cultural Spaces on the estate, like the Art Atelier and the open-air Dôme and Amphitheatre. Or in situ anywhere in the olive grove or in the medieval villages in the Mondego valley. The accommodation is specifically intended for long-term or temporary stays. The estate contributes actively to the ecology of the Mondego valley by participating in a biodiversity program. Our activities support the local economy.


Unfortunately, we had to cancel our activities and our festival due to Covid-19. The next edition of the unique intimate small scale summer theatre festival might take place in 2021.
