An order from the Secretaries of State for Tourism and Forestry and Rural Development published in Diário da República declares the “relevant public interest” of the investment in Ponte de Lima, in the district of Viana do Castelo.

The declaration makes it possible to occupy and area of 1,201 square metres covered by the National Agricultural Reserve (RAN) regime. The campsite will have a total capacity of 126 users through the restoration and adaptation of the premises of a former restaurant allowing for the creation of 14 bungalows and three buildings for facilities and support equipment.

The enterprise has already been declared of municipal public interest by the Municipal Assembly of Ponte de Lima.

Turismo de Portugal emphasises that the investment is part of the Tourism Strategy 2027, namely for the project “to economically promote the natural and rural heritage, ensuring its conservation and promote regeneration, urban development and the sustainable development of destinations.”

The Regional Directorate for Agriculture and Fisheries of the North and the National Entity of the Agricultural Reserve also gave favourable opinions.
