The treasure of the Portuguese Cultural Heritage is an important resource of our country, which is increasingly getting interest among tourists, looking for a different experience, that combines Tangible and Intangible Heritage.
The survey of Cultural Itineraries and Cultural Routes available online, allows us to introduce more than 500 hundred offers, of various themes, promoted by different entities, from all over the country. At the same time, we realized that some promoters are unable to monetize these products, not also as touristic resource but also as an economic development agent.
The development of a common strategy among all the entities involved is a challenge that should involve Cultural Institutions, namely museums.
