Discover the European Heritage Days in Catalonia!

The Catalan Cultural Heritage Agency promotes the European Heritage Days (JEP), a joint initiative of the Council of Europe and the European Commission that has been carried out uninterruptedly in Catalonia since 1991.

These Conferences are recognized as the main participatory event in Europe in relation to cultural heritage. Throughout all these years, the European Heritage Days have been an opportunity to discover the richness and diversity of cultural heritage, thanks to the collaboration of numerous municipalities, museums, monuments, associations and cultural entities throughout the territory, which Year after year they have opened the doors of their towns to bring their cultural heritage closer to the citizens.

We encourage you to participate in these days of discovery of our cultural heritage, which offer a wide variety of activities and new experiences.

These proposals, which range from guided tours and open houses to concerts and family activities and workshops, among others, can be consulted online, organized according to themes and geographical locations.

The European Heritage Days are an event open to everyone and an exceptional opportunity to rediscover our cultural heritage, with the main objective of strengthening the ties between it and society.

These sessions have the collaboration of the Federation of Municipalities of Catalonia, the Catalan Association of Municipalities, the Ramon Muntaner Institute, the Association of Microtowns of Catalonia and the Capital Association of Catalan Culture.

Purpose of the European Heritage Days

Through the activities, the organizers achieve:

  • Raise awareness about the cultural wealth and diversity of Europe.
  • Promote interest in European cultural heritage.
  • Fight against racism and xenophobia, and promote tolerance with other cultures in Europe.
  • Instill in citizens and administrations (or political leaders) the need to protect cultural heritage.
  • Invite Europe to respond to the social, political and economic challenges of the cultural sector.


Europe's cultural heritage is a rich and diversified mosaic of cultural and creative expressions that we have inherited from previous generations and that we will transmit to future ones. It includes natural, built and archaeological places, museums, monuments, works of art, historic cities, literary, musical and audiovisual works, as well as the knowledge, practices and traditions of European citizens.

European Heritage Days are held in the fifty signatory States of the European Cultural Convention every Autumn and are organized in close collaboration with national coordinators.

In each country there is a network of regional and local administrations, civic and private groups, as well as thousands of volunteers, in charge of organizing the events.

Each year is dedicated to a special common pan-European theme. Countries can join the common annual theme or organize activities around a local adaptation of the theme or on a topic of their choice.
