About the Tourism Strategic Plan of Alto Tâmega, Ramiro Gonçalves says to be “an important document because it has the great marks of what will be the territory strategy in the sense of having more and better tourists that may pay a higher value for what will be our range of experiences that will excel by quality”.

He also adds that the aim of the region is “to attract more people who value our identity and quality and that, at the same time, private operators understand that they have to work on this quality. It’s not enough to offer just anything because that spoils the experience. The path is that of quality.”
