In this route, starting from Cacilhas and walking along the riverside, we will meet the largest exilibris of the city of Almada the sanctuary of Christ the King, but far beyond the physical walk, where the river with its beauty comforts our soul, Let us make a way, through the dream, through the symbols that denounce the spirit of time and place. We will travel through the collective imagination, where the bridge unites the city of good light (Lisbon) with your beloved soul, Almada. We begin this adventurous dive, next to the Lighthouse of Cacilhas, I will shed light on the history of what is visible, the lighthouse, the majestic ship D. Fernando II e Gloria , his resting companion, Barracuda, mythical submarine that tells as much the stories as the days of sea ... but more importantly, what is hidden from sight, we will navigate the Alma de Almada. Let's read the narrative of the collective imagination that is hidden in the statues, murals, graffiti, buildings, as in a dream, we will interpret the symbol behind the image, which the path along the river reveals to us. Along the way where the Tagus dominates the horizon, the ruins of another time whisper stories still present in the smell of sea air. Finally in the sanctuary the symbol becomes extraordinary, the narrative of the new age, the new celestial age 2000 years later is surprisingly evident behind the symbols.
