Educational Service

The educational service welcomes groups of different ages and provenances, promoting experiences that suit their expectations and needs.

Guided Tours to the Aljube Museum

The tours are meant for all types of public, in groups organised with a maximum of 25 elements and with prior appointment. The scheduling is made according to the request, on every day of the week, Monday to Friday, and the visits take place from Tuesday to Sunday.

Guided tours can be conducted in Portuguese, English and French. Contact Judite Álvares by email, or phone 215 818 536.

Thematic Tours – School Groups

Guided tours through, and supported by, a script that allows, in a playful (for the younger public) and pedagogical way, the group’s interaction and consolidation of learning, albeit in a non-formal context.
