The Cultural Week – Lugares de Globalização is the result of a partnership formed by (Algarve’s Culture Department), the Municipalities of Aljezur, Lagos, Monchique, Silves and Vila do Bispo, the Região de Turismo do Algarve (Algarve Tourism Board) and the Association LAC.
The project is inspired by the content of the application for the UNESCO National Commission, with the same name, submitted by the Região de Turismo do Algarve jointly with the Direção Regional de Cultura do Algarve and the Municipalities of the target territory, which enabled the registration of these territories in the Portugal’s World Heritage Tentative List. These sites are distributed by 5 countries: Portugal - Aljezur, Lagos, Monchique, Silves and Vila do Bispo, in the Algarve; Angra do Heroísmo and Vila do Porto, in Azores and Funchal, in Madeira; Spain – Ceuta; Cape Verde; Morocco; Mauritania. These sites are part of the universal memory related to the imaginary of important historical changes (...)”.
This seminar intends to be the Cultural Week opening moment thru the meeting of responsible people for several “sites” and activity sectors, specialists, investigators and general public.Thus, it takes place and provides the first public moment of meeting and also information and perspectives sharing, to involve and add partners and offer the necessary cooperation commitment, to the national and international affirmation of the “Globalisation Sites”.

These places have remote traces and registries as globalisation sites, which write up and sign in our collective memory marking our identity. Which traces and registries are those? Where can we find those traces? Where can we see those registries?

Cooperation and Tourism
Cultural Heritage and Tourism – Cooperation and Networking
If there are registries and traces of common identities, how do those sites link and how do those traces affirm themselves, in a joint celebration, and also how do our taste reveal itself to the world, now marked by modern values of cultural exchange and dialogue among communities and people?

Cultural Heritage and Tourism - Challenges
Assuming the universal interest of the historical registries and traces of these sites, of that common identity and modern values of cultural interchange and dialogue among people, how can tourism contribute to affirm these places in the world? How to structure tourism product around these places which affirm their identity and values?
