Territórios de Pedra is a cultural project completed in the last two years in the Portuguese municipalities of Ansião, Figueiródos Vinhos and Pombal, creating a contemporary sculpture route with eight unique sculptures. Currently, a tourism film for the area is proudly presented.
The project aims to increase the tourist attractiveness of the area, promote the development and circulation of audiences and create complementary opportunities for regional visibility directly related to the regional tourism circuit, promoting new audiences through strong links with the architectural, natural and landscape heritage of the area, exploring unusual and distinctive contexts for artistic interventions, and ultimately promoting territorial cohesion and regional identity.
