On April 18, International Day of Monuments and Sites 2024, the Cultural Heritage, Public Institute, promoted the National Meeting "For the Love of Heritage", dedicated to joint reflection on the role of citizens and associations for the defense and enhancement of heritage in strategies to mitigate disasters and conflicts that victimize it, in the light of the Venice Charter.

Ana Cláudia Fernandes, Visiting Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Philosophy and Social Sciences (FFCS) of the Portuguese Catholic University (UCP) - Braga, presented the paper "Passeio das Virtudes: Pessoa, Património e Virtude". The main aim of the public project/event Virtue Walk: People, Heritage and Virtue is to contribute to enhancing the heritage of the Tibães Monastery on the theme of virtues, as well as the intangible heritage embodied in the testimony of people whose way of being illustrates virtue.

Each year, based on the work of collecting testimonies carried out by the coordinators of the Advanced Training in Positive Psychology and Logotherapy, in collaboration with students from UCP - Braga, literary versions of 7 inspiring stories of the practice of strengths of character are written to be read by the Poetry Union in the areas of the Monastery alluding to the virtues. The program ends in the Chapter Room with a concert of 17th century Italian music by Il Filo d'Oro.
