Hop to Melgaço

During the sixties thousands of Portuguese people emigrated to France "on the hop", such was the name of the clandestine journey of those looking for a new destination.

We propose that you take, not a bumpy ride like the ones from that era, but a leap to Melgaço on August 3rd and 4th, and share with us the program we have prepared as part of MDOC - Melgaço International Documentary Film Festival.

• Alternatively to the early afternoon sessions on the 3th (saturday), Hop to Melgaço participants may opt for guided tours in the Memória e Fronteira Museum and the Melgaço Cinema Museum, taking place from 2pm to 4pm. If so, participants should choose that option in the Entry Form.

• Travel between the different locations will be ensured by bus.
