The “Re-Cultural Heritage” project has reached its conclusion after two years of work and collaboration for cultural heritage preservation and sustainable development in Europe. This project funded by the European Union, has focused on the preservation and promotion of cultural heritage, the promotion of rural tourism and professional development.

On 22 February, we organised an event in the Pignatelli Hall which was attended by a diverse group of people to hear presentations by the management of the Santa María de Albarracín Foundation, the Directorate General for Cultural Heritage of the Government of Aragon and our management.

We at GEINNOVA announce the completion of the “Re-Cultural Heritage” Project with pleasure, presenting the activities and results obtained thanks to the collaboration of our European partners. With special thanks to the Santa María de Albarracín Foundation. The Foundation dedicated to turning Albarracín into a cultural emblem, has been the European coordinator in the implementation of our initiatives.

The main focus of “Re-Cultural Heritage” has been to integrate the preservation of cultural heritage with the economic and social development of the local community. It is a matter of revitalising the cultural environment to generate employment opportunities and sustainable growth in rural tourism.

This project’s strategy focuses on empowering the community to take an active role in the management and promotion of their heritage. This ensures long-term sustainability and greater involvement of local inhabitants in the conservation of their cultural identity.
