Spreading the benefits of pilgrimages in Europe
Pilgrimage routes are a significant cultural, economic and political asset for Europe. For instance, the economic impact of Santiago de Compostela – one of the most famous pilgrimage sites in Europe – was estimated to exceed EUR 300 million in 2019. While some routes already benefit from strong support from regional, national and European institutions, the EU-funded rurAllure project will help ensure that nearby provinces and regions of a predominantly rural nature (which are facing significant economic and demographic challenges) also benefit from the flows of pilgrims. The project will establish a network of cultural institutions, such museums and natural heritage sites, that could benefit from increased visibility among those who travel along the pilgrimage routes.
