PORTUGAL Heritage and Identity
Implementing excellence in architectural and planning
interventions in urban and rural areas, ensuring they are planned and carried
out with respect for the cultural and natural heritage.
Looking more closely at traditional practices will enable us
to reference the future with greater
knowledge (...) as a means of job creation, and for the promotion of tourism and
boosting the national economy.
Stimulating a sense of belonging, identity and
responsibility in individuals in relation to the community and the territory.
To protect and enhance the heritage and the cultural
landscapes is to perpetuate and transmit to the future the message and
knowledge of the past (...)
(...) the creation and implementation of a public policy on
architecture and landscape is a mission for Portugal.
