Impressionisms Routes© certified as new Cultural Route of the Council of Europe

24 mai 2018

The Steering Committee of the Enlarged Partial Agreement of the Council of Europe, meeting on 19 April 2018 in Luxembourg, decided to certify Impressionisms Routes (The Routes of Impressionisms in Europe) as a Cultural Route of the Council of Europe.


The Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe are an invitation to travel and discover the rich and diverse heritage of the continent, promoting the rapprochement of people in places of history and heritage. They carry the values of the Council of Europe : human rights, cultural diversity, intercultural dialogue and cross-border exchanges.


More than 30 cultural itineraries today offer a multitude of cultural and educational activities since the creation of the first and most famous of them : The Way of Saint-Jacques-de-Compostelle.

This European recognition rewards more years of work carried out within the framework of the Association EAU & LUMIERE.


The Impressionisms Routes network now operational in several European countries in constant widening.
