I created “Celanova&Beyond”, a cultural Facebook page, where I publish posts in 7 European languages (Spanish, English, German, French, Portuguese and Galician) devoted to the promotion of the natural and cultural heritage (both tangible and intangible) of our area (Celanova and surroundings) located in a rural setting:
• promoting best practices, a greater awareness and a greater degree of protection towards of our heritage among locals, which would positively contribute to the community’s self-esteem
• stressing the uniqueness of our heritage (especially regarding our intangible cultural heritage: our language – Galician – and literature, our folklore, our gastronomy, etc.) and at the same time its European dimension (Roman, Romanesque and Baroque architecture; Benedictine Order; Natura 2000 Network, etc.)
• promoting quality cultural tourism to attract visitors especially from other European countries in order to put a stop to the rural population drift and to the brain drain among youth.
“Celanova&Beyond” has been included as an event in the website of the “European Day of Languages”
“Celanova&Beyond” is a member of “Future for Religious Heritage”
“Celanova&Beyond” has followers from all over the world, but especially from several European countries
