European Heritage Days

European Heritage Days

One more year, the Provincial Council of Bizkaia launches a new edition of the European Heritage Days, an ambitious awareness program on Cultural Heritage, promoted by the Council of Europe in collaboration with the European Union. The initiative, with a long history at European level, has achieved an unprecedented success, since currently 50 states participate in it.


These are open-door days in which, exceptionally and only during certain days, the public has the opportunity to access and learn about a large number of resources related to their heritage and history.

Bizkaia has been joining the initiative on time and there are already eighteen years of faithful participation.

Having a common theme allows a great coherence to the general program of events, but also, and above all, stimulates the design of very elaborate and unique activities, different year after year.

We wish to examine these issues from a broad, multi-disciplinary, integrational perspective, analysing the role of women in building the culture of Bizkaia: the roles and tasks that they have undertaken voluntarily, and also those that they have been forced to undertake; their work as vehicles for passing on traditions an...
