Biblioteca Municipal de Castro Marim
Culture - Libraries
The Municipal Library of Castro Marim was inaugurated on 24 June 2008. A building of heritage, historical and even sentimental value for the population, it opened its doors to the public completely renovated and rehabilitated and with a very special mission in the community: the home of knowledge. This equipment for supporting culture and education was designed by the Architect José Alberto Alegria who, working under the influence of the four elements of life (Earth, Air, Fire and Water), brought to life a building with a marked Mediterranean influence from the Al-Andalusian Algarve, materialised in handcrafted and traditional building materials from the area. This combination results in an exemplary building, of great beauty, full of light and colour, with unique characteristics.
