First work of the "Art Way" project, by architect Álvaro Siza Vieira

The first work presented as part of the "Art Way" project is called Temple, which is still being completed, by architect Álvaro Siza Vieira, in Leça do Balio

The sculpture aims to honor the pilgrims and show the importance that the Monastery of Leça do Balio had in the Portuguese roads to Santiago.

The Way of Art, a project that aims to value the Ways of St. James, will bring a route of 261 km between the Cathedral of Porto and the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela with the installation of 60 works of contemporary art by national and international artists along the way.

The project is promoted by Lionesa - Associação de Arte, Cultura e Turismo, with the support of the Portuguese municipalities that the Ways of Santiago run through, such as Matosinhos, the Regional Culture Directorate of the North, and Turismo Porto e Norte de Portugal.

The Ways of St. James is one of the paths that pass through our municipality and several areas of the Union of Parishes.
