Prepared by the Municipality of Tavira, the exhibition aims at promoting and disseminating the different aspects of the Mediterranean Diet among all age groups. It includes a summary about the element inscribed by UNESCO as Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity: its history, cultural landscapes, health, products, the nomination/inscription, traditions, gastronomy and festivities, among others.
The exhibition is presented in Portuguese and English and includes videos about the approved nomination and allows playing interactive games and an array of aromas. There are leaflets in Portuguese, English and Spanish about the exhibition. This exhibition may be modulated and reconfigured for different spaces.
