MMIAH partners visited the Reina Sofia Cultural Centre, Gadir Archeological Museum, Santa Catalina Castle, Balneario de la Palma, among other sites. Partners also visited the Land Gate, where Ayuntamiento de Cádiz is implementing a virtual reality intervention for the reconstruction of missing elements of the old defensive system,  with the MMIAH project funding.

Conferences included the following talks: “A Vision of the Evolution of the City of Cadiz through Its Military Heritage. The Land Front” by the archeologist Ms. María Eugenia García Pantoja;  “Historical and Heritage Landmarks as Tourist Resources and Sites” by the County Secretary General for Tourism and Sport, Mr. Rodrigo Valdecantos Dema and “The City of Cádiz and Its Harbour” by the architect Ms. Teresa Bonilla Lozano.

The MMIAH project consortium is formed by 9 partners in 5 countries and is receiving a total funding of 3.3 million euros to develop inclusive, citizen-led tourism through the recovery of abandoned maritime, military and industrial heritage assets across the Atlantic coastal edge. The 9 participating partners will share best practice examples of heritage asset management and will deliver a joint tourism product offering a common vision for MMI heritage tourism leading to new cultural uses for abandoned heritage.
