3° Convivio Vespista Cidade da Lixa

By Bruno M.M. Rebelo



Vespa Concentration of the Lixa City 2018.06.09



Saturday, June 09, 2018, the day starts with heavy rain, the weather has not helped, it has been raining all week, which meant that most of the registrations were not present at the event. Even so, 87 brave and intrepid were present. By 3 o'clock in the afternoon, all participants were ready to start the tour.





After passing through some streets of the old part of town, our first stop was in Town Hall. The second stop, to supply both Vespas and their drivers. We returned to the road a little more to enjoy the landscape. Around 6 o'clock in the afternoon, the third stop on a monument of the Romanesque Route, Torre de Vilar, where a guided tour (Rotadoromanico) was held to learn more about this inigmatic medieval tower.


The Romanesque style emerged in Portugal at the end of the eleventh century, in the context of a wider phenomenon of Europeanization of culture, which brought to the Iberian Peninsula clunical monastic reform and Roman liturgy. The arrival of the religious orders of Cluny, Cister, the Canons of St. Augustine and the Military Orders must be understood in the process of the Reconquest and the organization of the territory. Being a predominantly religious architecture, the Romanesque is closely related to the diocesan and parochial ecclesiastical organization and to the monasteries of the various monastic orders founded or rebuilt in the 12th and 13th centuries.


Near the Torre de Vilar, a dinner was prepared for all participants in the event, as well as the representatives of the Town Hall and Town Councils.


Shortly afterwards, we raffled among those enrolled some articles that were donated by supporters of the event, money offered to non-profit institutions. Around 2 o'clock in the morning, we closed this event.

Thank you all and see you next year.
