Some background information
OBRAS-Portugal is located in a rural region. It occasionally organises exhibitions, concerts, workshops and other events, but hosting and facilitating residents is its first goal. Although the general rule is that much of your time at OBRAS is yours to organise, we are always available for advice, support or feedback.
The Centre has several apartments, studios and a music hall. It can host up to ten artists, but generally we accept around five at the same time. You will stay in a spacious two-persons-apartment. Your apartment has a kitchenette, a bathroom with shower and a private terrace.
The nearest shop is 5 km from the Centre. You can join us on our shopping trips (generally once every two days) or give us a shopping list. The local bus stops few times per day at the entrance of the establishment.
Some two times a week we invite you for a shared dinner: if you want to participate you prepare a dish and share this with the others.
See guidelines on this website for more details, but feel free to request our advice:

The duration of your residency will generally be between 3 weeks and two months.
We request you to pay a deposit of 120 €. After your deposit is received, your reservation is done. If your plans change, let us know in time. For us this makes the difference between endless waiting and simple logistical re-adjustments. You will get your deposit back if your cancellation is longer than 4 months in advance.
OBRAS accepts direct payment and bank transfers, but no cheques. OBRAS also works with Paypal. You will get an official invoice of all payments.
