Ciência Viva

Science Centre

During the 15th Century, Lagos was an important basis for the search for the unknown undertaken by the Portuguese navigators. It was from this port that the ships that initiated the exploration of the African coast weighed anchor and it was also here that ship building and navigation techniques were perfected. This search led to the discovery of new lands, contact with other cultures and important technical and scientific progress. The Ciência Viva Centre has numerous interactive modules and activities developed around the theme of Discoveries. Its a great place to take the kids!
