The objective of the NAPOCTEP project is to enhance the cultural heritage of the Napoleonic era through the creation of Napoleonic routes in an area that includes the central region of Portugal (the inter-municipal communities of Coimbra Region and Beiras and Serra da Estrela, along with the Historic Route of the Lines of Torres) and the western Castilian-Leonese provinces (Salamanca, Zamora, Valladolid, León and Ávila), generating an innovative and attractive tourist product that generates economic activity and employment.
The project will have a planned duration of two years (2019-2021), with a total investment of 711 thousand euros co-financed by the European Commission within the INTERREG POCTEP program.
