Eurovelo Final Conference Meeting C Ecf

The EuroVelo 3 – Pilgrims Route international final conference will be held in Santiago de Compostela, Spain on 25-26 September 2019 at the Pilgrim’s Museum (Praza das Praterías 2, Santiago de Compostela).

International experts from all around Europe will gather to share the lessons that have been learned during the project and other best practices from the rest of the continent.

The EuroVelo 3 – Pilgrims Route project is an 18-months long initiative aimed to develop EuroVelo 3 – Pilgrims Route as a transnational touristic product financed by the EU COSME programme.

Event programme:

The EuroVelo 3 International Conference “Cycling and Cultural Tourism: the perfect match”, will feature two main plenary sessions with representatives from international, national and regional governing bodies, tourism organisations and project partners.

Participants will get the opportunity to look back at the main results of the project which initially kicked-off back in April 2018 in Brussels. The programme will also feature several parallel sessions on various cycling tourism subjects such as UNESCO sites, route promotion and infrastructure. Some of the additional evening activities include a walking tour in Santiago and registration to the Conference is free.

On the second day, a bike visit will be organised along the EuroVelo 3 section in Santiago de Compostela, a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site in the northwest of Spain, known for its pilgrimage traditions.

EuroVelo 3 – Pilgrims Route takes cyclists from Norway to Spain on a 5,100 km long exploration of Europe’s famous pilgrims’ routes and religious buildings. For more information on the route, visit the ECF website.

COSME is the EU programme for the Competitiveness of Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) and this project is funded by the European Commission’s Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME).
