The European Cultural Route "Destination Napoleon" as a vector for sustainable tourism, cultural and heritage development within the POCTEP cooperation space.

NAPOCTEP Project

The objective of the NAPOCTEP project is to enhance the cultural heritage of the Napoleonic era through the creation of routes in the area that covers the Central Region of Portugal (Beira and Serra da Estela) and the western Spanish provinces of Salamanca, Zamora, Valladolid, León and Avila, creating an innovative and attractive tourist product which generates economic activity and employment.

This project is expected to last two years (2019-2021), with a total investment of 711 thousand euros, co-financed by the European Commission within the INTERREG PROCTEP programme.
