The Grilo Workshop is a public space for new ideas and challenges. Its “garden-that’s-not-a-garden” is a constantly shifting living work. Going through the workshop, we exit into a rectangular outdoor space laterally bordered by ruined walls that create an inviting patio for conversations and exchange, ending at the São Bartolomeu do Beato Church.

Here there are weeds, like nettles and rushes, and others that have been brought by the owners, such as malvas, nasturtiums, arums and others. Some of them recall older farms, like the pomegranate trees and collard greens, while others appear abandoned and wild, like bougainvilleas, roses, geraniums and succulents.
