The environment among the ten participating towns turned out to be very good, to the point of creating a network among these municipalities as a laboratory of ideas with the aim of creating a greater twinning between them and seeking alternatives and aid for the promotion of rural tourism.
This network established under the Manifesto 'Network of Finalist Locations to the Capital of Rural Tourism' intends to work towards three points of action.
On the one hand, the promotion, conservation and synergies in the field of cultural heritage are sought, on the other hand generate a type of sustainable tourism and directed towards ecotourism, and finally act against one of the fundamental remains as a country facing Spain with the strong Depopulation in rural areas, where more than 4,000 villages are at risk of disappearing.
In this sense, the manifesto calls for support for new initiatives and rural tourism as a cohesive element and future producer for these small municipalities.
