The Route of the Romanesque is once again present at the AR&PA - Iberian Biennial of Cultural Heritage, which this year will take place in the city of Leiria, between the 14th and 17th of October, under the theme of Youth and Heritage.
The AR&PA Biennial has, as usual, a wide range of exhibiting entities in the sector (digital and physical presence) and a wide associated program, including seminars, courses, Heritage Education activities, concerts, performances, workshops, visits and itineraries, digital exhibitions and competitions.
On the 14th, Thursday, at 12 am, the Route of the Romanesque will make a presentation of its Interpretation Centres at the Innovation Point, the online space dedicated to technical presentations by AR&PA exhibitors.
During the four days of the event, in the Mercado de Sant'Ana, the Educational Service of the Route of the Romanesque will streamline the activities Build your own stonemason's mark! and Mural painting.
AR&PA is a meeting point and discussion forum for professionals and institutions involved in protecting and managing Cultural Heritage. Thanks to its exhibition area, a great variety of scientific and professional activities and its social programmes, it has become one of the leading trade fairs in the sector in Europe.
The Iberian Biennial of Cultural Heritage is the result of the fusion, in 2017, of the Biennial of Heritage Restoration and Management AR&PA (Junta of Castile and León), held in Valladolid since 1998, and the Heritage Fair (Spira), an event created in 2013, in Portugal.
The first edition of AR&PA with this Iberian format took place in the city of Amarante, from 13 to 15 October, 2017, and was promoted by the Route of the Romanesque.
The event takes place alternately in Portugal (in a different place every odd year) and Spain (in Valladolid, every even year).
The participation of the Route of the Romanesque in the 2021 AR&PA Biennial within the scope of the project "EEC PROVERE Tourism for All: Enhancing, Boosting and Promoting Tourism Across the Region", is co-financed by Norte 2020, Portugal 2020 and European Union, through the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
