Proceedings from an International Cultour+ Summer School carried out between the 13th and the 15th of July 2016 hosted by the University of Extremadura in Cáceres. Under the medieval citadel, a World Heritage Site, participants let deploy their knowledge and ideas on how to transform pilgrimage routes and thermal spas into pillars for the sustainable development of the countryside and the local societies.
The presentations combined academic papers on heritage and tourism management, accounts of good practices applied in various European (as well as in non-European) countries, examples of innovation in cultural tourism, research work-in-progress carried out in areas selected as case-studies in participant countries as well as proposed plans of action of the Cultour+ entrepreneurs selected for mentoring and support in project’s framework.
