Museological Nucleus of Sargaço of Castelo de Neiva

The tradition of seeding (seaweed) to fertilize the soil was a traditional activity essential for the agriculture of the land by the sea.

Although this practice has fallen into disuse today, the knowledges, artifacts and costumes (the branqueta) have reminded of these times, and are shown in this nucleus.

But this space also addresses the enormous potential of seaweed on our shores, with applications in medicine, cosmetics and also in gastronomy. The fact that most of these algae are edible - and tasty, and very healthy - makes it integrate already the menus of several restaurants, giving a special flavor to the most exquisite dishes.
