This is who we are

Science Retreats promotes innovation in arts and sciences.

We are located at the heart of historical Évora - UNESCO World Heritage Site. Given its small size, privileged location, unique quality of life, historical glamour, and vibrant academic and economic environment, it is one of the Portuguese towns with the greatest potential for growth in the artistic, scientific, and cultural domains. 

​​

We are guided by the following values:​

  • Excellence in management and services provided;

  • Promotion of social cohesion and environmental sustainability: 

  • Uncompromised support for freedom of thought, respect for individual differences, and democratic values.
