The Museological Center of Alto S. Bento is a municipal educational project that intends to value and conserve the natural and cultural heritage of the place that gives it the name: Alto de S. Bento.
For the granite massif, the precious flora and the historical load is undoubtedly the most admirable natural lookout in the city of Évora.
The Municipality of Évora proceeded to recover the buildings, the Moinhos do Alto de S. Bento which had exhausted their original function for many decades, and the space that surrounds them and gave them back their vitality and usefulness, with the use of the place to the realization of a municipal educational project: a museological nucleus that took the name of the place. Thus was born the Educational Project of Alto de S. Bento, which includes the Museological Nucleus of the Granite and the Museological Nucleus of Floristics.
