Oeste region to spend €300,000 on extending tourist stays

in Business · 01-03-2018 13:20:00 · 0 Comments

Up until June, the business association Obidos.com is to invest €300,000 in boosting the average length of time that tourists stay in the Oeste region of Portugal, which includes the famed medieval village of Óbidos, seaside towns Nazaré and Peniche, and Caldas da Rainha.

The project is based on seven activities that are to be developed until June with the aim of extending stays, including an ideas competition which has already received 40 projects from 18 local schools.
Of those, Obidos.com has selected 15 applications that could result in new businesses.
Transforming abandoned shipping containers from local ports into small studio flats or creating a floating restaurant on the Lagoa de Óbidos Lake are two of the ideas in the competition.
The winners were due to be announced this week.
