Quinta Pedagógica dos Olivais
Science and Knowledge
Olivais pedagogical farm is the ideal place for children from the city to come into contact with traditional rural activities and observe countryside animals.
Other activities include embroidery, bread- and cake-making, production of cheese and butter, working with clay in the pottery workshop, tending the vegetable garden or planting cabbages. At the pedagogical farm it's possible to see everything related to life in the country. Of course, walks through the farm are always animated by the presence of familiar friends, such as ducks, chickens, sheep, goats, pigs, donkeys and cows amongst others.
During week days, the farm primarily receives school groups, while at the weekends it is mainly visited by families, who are provided with a specific theme each Saturday in order to take maximum advantage of the pedagogical farm.
The ideal trip in order to see something different from normal life in the city.
