European Cultural Route


European Cultural Route

A European Cultural Route is a title awarded to cultural routes recognised as significant throughout Europe by the Council of Europe. The European Institute of Cultural Routes is the body established to help the Council of Europe co-ordinate the development of these routes.

The first route awarded "European Cultural Route" status was the Way of St. James route to Santiago de Compostela in Spain in 1987.
