The Seminar included talks by various participating speakers, namely researchers, senior technicians from the municipal and regional public administrations and, also, directors of tourist companies, about the following topics, all relating to the promotion actions to be deployes for supporting tourism in the area:

  • Proximity Heritage in the context of sustainable goals
  • The Hydraulic Heritage in the Algarvean Landscape: Research and inventory
  • Campina de Faro (the area of our pilot): Perspective from the Inventory of Faro’s Charter of Heritage
  • Historical irrigation systems of the agrarian coastal plain
  • Paths of Knowledge and Leisure: Building a Pathway

The Seminar served as a space for reflection and debate on the landscape and water heritage in the area covered by the Pilot case, and the role and importance that they may have in the context of a proposal for cultural routes associated with cultural tourism.
