    Description

    We are an Associação Cultural - a non-profit organization that was formed out the desire of a small group of people who wanted to do more for art and culture in the Góis municipality. In only three years, we have been able to generate several major projects.

    We aim to be a cultural pioneer in the region. To be independent, with a sustainable structure and active participation in public life.

    RAIZVANGUARDA is based in an old primary school, with the ambition to transform the building and its surroundings into an active, creative art space through workshops and regular events; making use of the large rooms and outdoor space available. We hope that we can meet like-minded people who are keen and interested in helping to develop the space.

    About Gois and Bordiero:

    The tranquil municipality of Góis is situated 40km in Coimbra, in the deep, narrow valley of the Ceira, between the mountains of Carvalhal and Rabadão. The towns of Colmeal, Cadafaz, Vila Nova do Ceira and Góis are crossed by the crystal clear waters of Ceira river.

    The 1043 meters of Penedos de Góis are an invitation to those who love adventure and exploring nature, with many tracks perfect for those who are interested in hiking. In Gois itself, there are many cafes, restaurants and a chance to swim in the river and explore the beautiful surroundings.

    There are buses that run to the main village, and we are happy to offer guests the use of our bicycles, which may be used to explore locally. We can also provide the odd lift into village with notice as well as help with planning days off and suggestions for travel.
