The Red de Cooperación de Ciudades en la Ruta de la Plata is a voluntary association made up of cities on the route called the Vía de la Plata and its area of influence that sets out to jointly defend and promote the route’s tourist, historical, cultural and economic resources. The association’s main objective is to give more publicity to the tourist resources available at the members’ locations, while also strengthening the value of the many and varied attractions offered by the Ruta Vía de la Plata.
The Ruta Vía de la Plata has long been a communications route in western Spain and has a rich and varied heritage, including cities in the UNESCO World Heritage list. The route is a powerful living representation of the potential for culture and tourism in Spain and Europe.
The network was established in April 1997 with the statutes that govern it, and the first registrations included signatories such as the mayors of Gijon, Leon, Zamora, Salamanca, Caceres and Seville, and since then it has become a major tourist attraction.
