Tips, hints and links

A freguesia de Martinchel desenvolveu-se sobretudo devido à construção da Barragem de Castelo de Bode. No século XIX, por ocasião das invasões francesas, supõe-se que o comandante francês Junot terá passado por esta aldeia quando se dirigia para Lisboa. Como tradições permanecem o cantar dos reis, a matança do porco, as vindimas e a apanha da azeitona. No artesanato, realçam-se os Ovos Bordados, trabalho que consiste na decoração de ovos, previamente esvaziados. Depois de revestidos com lã ou linha de cores vivas, que formavam losangos e pompons na ponta, eram aplicados em pegas, que serviam de elemento decorativo nas paredes das casas de Martinchel. Na gastronomia destacam-se os Bolos de Ferradura e os pratos confecionados à base de cabrito, borrego e peixe do rio: sopa de sável, caldeirada de barbo, fataça na telha e arroz de lampreia.

No Centro Ciência Viva de Constância, encontra meios diversificados e apelativos que permitem observar os astros e aprender ciência de forma interessante em todas as idades.
