Heritage is a meeting place and place to learn. Heritage is the the place where people from different backgrounds and from different generations discover a common past, which unites them in the present and projected them into a future settled in our cultural tradition.
Heritage is the transmission belt of our essence, of our identity, the mirror where we see ourselves reflected, the connection to who we are as a result of the passing of time, in which people and events have built our reality current. We must, therefore, to know, to recreate, to enrich, and to share our heritage.
The cultural programme "Emilianensis. Discover the monasteries of La Rioja", contributes to o disseminate the cultural heritage, tangible and intangible, located around the the monasteries of Suso and Yuso, in San Millán de la Cogolla. Thousands of children, young people and adults, locals and foreigners, have learned about ways of life and trades already forgotten, transmitted from generation to generation to build the commun European Cultural Heritage.

What do you think and feel cultural heritage really means? #peopleplacesstories
The starting point of this proposal is a collaborative approach to the concept of cultural heritage. For those who are interested, we invite you to send us a short text accompanied by an image of what you think or feel the cultural heritage slogan “People, Places, Stories” (which, as you all know, is articulated in the Council of Europe Faro Convention) really means.
Your contributions and reflections produced by this collaborative process will serve as a starting point towards the necessary participative review of the concept of cultural heritage and will appear in the 10th edition of the “Memoria Viva” magazine to be published by the “Patrimoni Project” in July 2018.
This invitation will be open until February 25th 2018. Many thanks to everyone for your interest and participation. You can find all the details in this link
