The actions approved at the sectorial conference will focus on promoting the coast as a tourist attraction.

 

Galicia will receive a total of 29.3 million euros from the Next Generation funds to carry out the Territorial Coastal Plan. This is the tool through which the community will manage the funds from the extraordinary call for the Tourism Sustainability Plans in Destinations that the central government and its regional counterparts have just agreed at the last meeting of the Sectorial Conference on Tourism.

 

The funds earmarked for Galicia will make it possible to implement three Destination Cohesion Actions (ACD), which will be promoted directly by the Xunta, and ten Destination Tourism Sustainability Plans (PSTD), which will be promoted by local councils and other local, regional and provincial entities. For this call, the regional government has chosen to establish as a priority to enhance the value of our coasts as a tourist attraction through the conservation of its resources and the improvement of its infrastructures.

 

The PSTDs approved in Galicia, which will share 18 million euros, are the following: design and construction of the Museum of the Sea in Ribeira; creation of a mountain bike centre in Fragas do Eume, with cycle routes, a park and ride facility, an electric shuttle and a service area for caravans in the municipality of Cabanas; creation of geotourism experience programmes, improvement of small tourist businesses, promotion of gastronomy and local products and creation of a network of interpretation centres in the Cape Ortegal Geopark; transformation of tourist infrastructures, improvement of accessibility and promotion of the markets of the Biosphere Reserve of As Mariñas Coruñesas; coastal paths, extension of the network of viewpoints, digital contents and service area for motorhomes and bicycles in the area of the estuary of Muros and Noia; restoration of the Castiñeiras lake, creation of natural pools on the coastline and a mountain bike station, and implementation of a bicycle and electric scooter rental service in Marín; renaturalisation of the Santa Liberata area, improvement of the bicycle lane, bicycle rental system and park-and-ride facilities in Baiona; continuation of the Salnés greenway in the municipality of Pontevedra and lighting of natural areas; refurbishment of the area of A Telleira, improvement of the surroundings of the Pazo de Quintáns and digitalisation of museums and interpretation centre, in Sanxenxo; and renaturation of riverbanks, efficient lighting of heritage, recovery of ethnographic heritage and creation of the first open-air museum on Corpus Christi in Ponteareas, in the counties of O Condado and Paradanta.

 

The three ACDs promoted by the Xunta and endowed with 11.3 million will allow action to be taken on the emblematic resources of the coast (rehabilitation of heritage, improvement of the tourist façade and digitalisation of resources with tourist potential), the Galician coastal path (improvement of the route and maintenance, as well as intelligent signage), and the revaluation of ports and nautical sports activities (provision of sustainable mobility equipment for cruise destinations, improvement of the efficiency and digitalisation of ports and the creation of a network of visitor circuits for nautical tourists).
