Protection and reuse for development of Social Heritage: Domus Dei to Domus Populi.
Cantabria region worked on the transformation of a religious building (Domus Dei) into an inclusive centre (Domus Populi) to facilitate community encounters and welcome tourists and pilgrims. Located in a thousand-year old church, Liébana is a public-private initiative that has improved the local awareness of the value of the regional religious heritage. The process has included a fourfold strategic dimension which has taken into account a research dimension, acquisition and protection of infrastructure, an approach to business development and a marketing concept linked to tourism.
Other themes to be tackled during the visit:
- Rural development and territorial cohesion of the region via various cultural heritage initiatives and projects.
- Use of European funds and projects for regional cultural heritage initiatives
- Connections to the Sustainable Development Goals
