Long Description:
[PT]
Situadas junto ao museu, mas sem lhe atingir o enquadramento histórico e natural, as instalações do Centro de Estudos permitiram transformar este lugar simbólico num centro de irradiação que, tendo por primeiro objecto a figura e a obra de Camilo, visa acima de tudo a promoção de uma rasgada política de intervenção cultural e científica a favor da Língua e Cultura Portuguesas, como realidade essencial e privilegiado fundamento, não apenas da nossa identidade, mas também, e sobretudo, da sua afirmação no vastíssimo espaço da lusofonia e nos países da União Europeia.

[EN]
Located next to the museum, without affecting the historic and natural environment, the facilities of the Center allowed to turn this place into a symbolic center of irradiation, with the first object the figure and the work of Camilo, aims above all to promote one torn cultural and political intervention in favor of scientific Portuguese language and culture as essential reality and privileged foundation not only of our identity, but also and above all, its claim in the vast space and the Lusophone countries of the European Union.
