Elvas promotes cultural and artistic initiatives to attract visitors

As a way to boost tourism in the municipality and encourage the local economy, the Municipality of Elvas is promoting several cultural and artistic initiatives to give visibility to the municipality, and attract new audiences.

Since the county's tourism is essential, focused on three branches of activity (trade, catering and hospitality), thus, the Municipality of Elvas intends to enhance and support, throughout the year, dozens of initiatives whose purpose is to make the municipality known and take advantage of the favorable adhesion of those who travel to the region.

According to the President of the municipality, Nuno Mocinha, the pandemic is having a devastating impact on the local economy, with the tourism industry like catering, hotelaria, and tourist entertainment, to be hit hard by the containment measures. Assim, and in view of the support measures that this municipality has already presented and put in place to support local companies, at this moment it is crucial to create specific tourist promotion actions and continue to place Elvas as a destination of excellence.

Neste sentido, one of the great actions was the bet on the creation of a video postcard from Forte da Graça, project that aims to publicize and promote the important monument classified as World Heritage by UNESCO.
