The answer is in the Factsheets!
An amazing EU UNESCO4ALL TOUR project intends to cover the different aspects, related to a tourism. Some of them are: improving the customer service, spreading the updates in the accessible tourism field among the public, creating a new disruptive technology, but that’s not all! The project engages 4 EU countries with the surprising historical value. That simply means, that except changing the paradigm of accessible tourism, EU UNESCO4ALL TOUR manages to cover the cultural aspect, bringing the attention to the EU Unesco World Heritage Built sites!
The 4 Sites have been carefully chosen by the Partnership Consortium:
- The Alhambra Palace Granada;
- The Rila Monastery;
- The Cathedral St James;
- The Basilica of Aquileia.
Of course, with such a wonderful collection the really precise work is needed to be done! Involving not only the technical part of the premises, but emphasising the historical importance and diversity we’re presenting. With this in mind there were created incredible EU UNESCO4ALL TOUR Factsheets!
- Factsheets? What’s that?
The aim of the Fact Sheet is to provide with information on the 4 UNESCO cultural heritage sites in 4 out of the 6 participant countries as destinations of the route resulting from the EU UNESCO4ALL-TOUR Project. The information is needed to give a greater insight into any aspects that may be of interest for the direct and indirect beneficiaries of the touristic product.
- Great, what’s in there?
Each of the document covers the following topics:
• EU UNESCO4ALL-TOUR site
• Specific Key Facts: mapping the tourism area around
• General Information prior and during the trip
• Ancillary Activities on the nearby
Literally speaking, all you need to know about the WH UNESCO4ALL sites in one place, together with the instructions on how to get, where to stay and many other useful info!
- I want to know more, let’s dig dipper!
Here is the intro to the UNESCO4ALL Factsheets:
1) The Alhambra Palace Granada, in Spain;
The Alhambra is a palace and fortress complex located in the medieval part of Granada,Andalusia, Spain, and one of the sites included at UNESCO Worlds Heritage. The name Alhambra comes from an Arabic root which means “red or crimson castle”. It is the only surviving palatine city (a royal territorial center) of the Islamic Golden Age. It was created originally for military purposes in AD 889 on the remains of Roman fortifications, comprising three parts: “alcazaba” (fortress), an “alcázar” (palace) and a small “medina” (city). The complex is irregular in shape and surrounded by defensive walls. The Alhambra spans nearly 26 acres, with more than a mile of walls, 30 towers and numerous smaller structures (…).
2) The Rila Monastery, in Bulgaria;
The Monastery of Saint Ivan of Rila better known as the Rila Monastery is located at 1, 147 meters’ altitude in Rila National Park in the middle of forests and peaks of Rila Mountains. The monastery was founded in the 10th century in honor of St Ivan of Rila (876-946 AD), a hermit canonized by the Orthodox Church, who spent the last 20 years of his life praying in complete solitude and without any material possessions not far from the monastery’s location up into the mountain. His ascetic dwelling and tomb became a holy site and were transformed into a monastic complex which played an important role in the spiritual and social life of medieval Bulgaria. Today the Monastery is a characteristic example of the Bulgarian Revival (18th–19th centuries) and during that time it was the most important spiritual and literary center with an uninterrupted history from the Middle Ages until present times (…).
3) The Cathedral St James, in Croatia
The Cathedral of St James in Šibenik is the most important architectural achievement in the 15th and 16th century on Croatian soil, located on the Dalmatian coast. It bears witness to the considerable exchanges in the field of monumental arts between Northern Italy, Dalmatia and Tuscany. Thus, the Cathedral is a unique testimony of the transition from the Gothic to the Renaissance period in church architecture. The structure of the place was entirely built of stone and using a unique construction technique for the vaulting and the dome of the Cathedral. The form and the decorative elements of the Cathedral illustrate a successful fusion of Gothic and Renaissance art (…).
4) The Basilica of Aquileia, in Italy
The Aquileia´s is covered by an extensive archaeological area and its Patriarchal Basilica, located at the northern end of the Adriatic Sea on the Natissa (Natiso) River, and represents an artistic, historical and magic part of our history and culture. It was one of the largest and wealthiest cities of the Early Roman Empire and was destroyed by Attila in the mid-5th century. Fortunately, after a result of various renovations and extensions that have been carried out over the centuries, the grandeur of the building and the allure it was restored and still is a point for the tourists. The Basilica is ancient Aquelia´s largest and most admired monument not only in reason of the Romanesque – Gothic style, with their exceptional mosaic pavement but also because played a key role in the evangelization of a vast region of central Europe (…).
