THE HERITAGE NIGHT.
LA NOCHE DEL PATRIMONIO. LA NIT DEL PATRIMONI. A NOITE DO PATRIMONIO

In 2018, on the occasion of the celebration of the 25th anniversary of its creation, the Spanish World Heritage Cities Group (GCPHE) launched LA NOCHE DEL PATRIMONIO. LA NIT DEL PATRIMONI. A NOITE DO PATRIMONIO to highlight the diversity and “living heritage” of the 15 Cities through their local talents, cultural expressions and the hybridisation between intangible heritage and contemporary creation. Since then, this unique event in Europe has created a space for exchange between UNESCO World Heritage Cities, artistic territories and diverse audiences.
