In this program we will take our participants to Berlengas.

This archipelago is made up of three islets (Berlenga Grande, Estelas and Farilhões-Forcadas).

In addition to being the largest island in the archipelago, Berlenga Grande is also the only habitable one. Once, it was the retreat of the monks who built the Monastery of Mercy in Berlenga, who ended up abandoning it due to food shortages, the looting of corsairs and the violent attacks of pirates sailing across the Atlantic.

Today, only a few loose stones and walls remain from the original building that gave rise to a restaurant. The most notable construction on the island is the Fortress of S. João Baptista, which seems to extend from the Berlenga rocks to the ocean. In 1847, it suffered the same fate as the Monastery and was abandoned. It was only in the 20th century that restoration work was carried out that brought back all the splendor to this magnificent building of Portuguese military architecture.

 

Diving Baptism

A unique experience for all those who wish to go diving.

The Berlengas Islands are a privileged destination for those curious about nature, marine life and adventure. We will have diving monitors guiding our participants at every moment so that they feel safe and can enjoy this unique experience. Of course, it goes without saying that those who have machines with submersible equipment can and should try to obtain unique images.

FAQs

What support will I have from photographic leaders?
In the photo details workshops leaders rarely photograph so that they can be 100% available to participants. There will be times when they will photograph side by side with the participants and share frames, composition and advisable settings.
The program says that the transportation is on account of each participant, will it be possible to share vehicles?
Yes, it will not only be possible, but also desirable. Usually with the participants who have facebool profile this issue is approached a few days before the workshops in order to combine hitchhiking with each other and share their costs.
How should we proceed with meals not included?
All logistical issues during the program are already adequately ensured.
What do I need to bring regarding photographic equipment, and what about clothing?
With your registration and booking will be sent a detailed program where all these issues are addressed.
