Help us to find the treasure of the castle! The corsair Drake says he stole the money to pay the soldiers of the castle and hid it somewhere to rush for him another day.
The education and knowledge acquired in compulsory education mark educational bases for the human being. In this way arguments and value judgments are forged so the students will be able to apply them to the rest of their life activities, providing them with tools for their future formation.
The field of social sciences does not escape this concept. Moreover, it becomes a basic tool to know the environment and the history that surrounds us. Under this premise several routes that combine the promotion of the perception of the environment in which the students live are proposed. These routes complete and complement the training materials of the classrooms.
From the Deputación de A Coruña, work is in progress towards the conservation and the preservation of the heritage of the province for which the Deputacion is responsible. That is why creating synergies between the cultural heritage and the children becomes a primary objective that provides values and knowledge from childhood.
As can be seen in this space, we offer, on the one hand, routes through heritage resources of the Deputacion de A Coruña and, on the other hand, proposals from the municipalities.
The program is aimed at students between 4 and 16 years old, from any school in the province of A Coruña.
The Deputación de A Coruña and different town councils offer a guide who will be responsible for explaining the most outstanding and interesting points of the place on each visit. They have a playful and formative character so that the little ones enjoy learning. Experience and research the heritage around you!
How long is each visit?
As regards the heritage of the Deputación de A Coruña, the tours and activities are organized so that each visit lasts about two hours, with time to draw, write, walk and know not only the place but also the environment. As for the municipal proposals, the duration will vary according to the case.
How much does it cost?
Visits to the patrimonial assets of the Deputación de A Coruña are free. In relation to the municipal proposals, there are resources whose visit is free and others in which it is not, presenting variations in the price according to the case.
