Fédération Française des Itinéraires Culturels Européens

Cultural Routes go through the French territory, crossroads of European ways. These Routes illustrate the ebb and flow on which is based the history of our continent. Some of these routes gathered in a federation in May 2010. Nowadays, the French Federation of European Cultural Routes (FFECR) gathers both Routes certified by the Council of Europe and other Routes that respect its charter of values.

The FFECR aims at raising awareness of the European cultural identity and citizenship ; fostering intercultural and interreligious dialogue ; preserving cultural and natural, tangible and intangible heritage as a factor of sustainable development.

TRANSROMANICA connects the common Romanesque heritage of nine European countries: Germany, Austria, Portugal, Spain, France, Italy, Slovakia, Serbia and Romania. Along the route, you can find historic buildings of this era. The Romanesque style emerged in the late 10th century as a new form of architecture. Magnificent cathedrals, monasteries and peaceful churches and castles held witnesses to this major European era. The first Europe formed in the Middle Ages is the origin of our present European Community. Romanesque is unity in diversity.

TRANSROMANICA is committed to promoting the European heritage of the Romanesque art and architecture, and develop tourism so as to support sustainable regional and economic development. The association strives to promote its member regions, buildings and sites, and make them accessible to the public. Through sustainable cultural tourism development and a targeted tourism marketing, the conservation of buildings will be achieved.
