Coinciding with the National Day of Historic Centers, the session will take place on Tuesday night.

Interrupted by the pandemic, the initiative that recalls the county's stories and legends on full moon nights under the guidance of historian Joel Cleto will take place, throughout 2023, under the 250th anniversary of Nicolau Nasoni's death. Having developed a large part of his work in Portugal, the Italian architect became associated "to the profound changes registered in the 18th century in the Bom Jesus de Matosinhos Church, but also to the Quinta do Chantre, in Leça do Balio, or the portal of Quinta dos Bispos, in Santa Cruz do Bispo," according to a note sent to the Press.

With free participation, the heritage routes scheduled for this year will include the historic centers of Matosinhos, Leça da Palmeira, Santa Cruz do Bispo, S. Mamede de Infesta and also Porto, in a partnership with the Brotherhood of Clerics.

The presentation session of Moontosinhos is scheduled for 9:30 p.m., in the mirror room of the museum housed in the palatial Visconde de Trevões. Admission is free, but limited to the capacity of the room.
