At its meeting on July 4th, the Lagos City Council approved a congratulatory vote publicly congratulating the company Onyria Palmares Beach & Golf Resort, for the victory in the Private Project Requalification Category of the Turismo de Portugal Awards.
The awards ceremony to the winners of the 7th edition of the Turismo de Portugal Awards took place last week and was presided over by the Secretary of State for Tourism, Cecília Meireles. These awards aim to recognize innovative and meritorious initiatives and good practices in tourism.
According to Turismo de Portugal, the attribution of this award to the company Onyria Palmares Beach & Golf Resort is assumed as “an inevitable choice for golfers since it is an emblematic golf course, prepared to host major tournaments in the sport”.
Asserting golf as a strategic product of tourism development in the municipality of Lagos, and considering that the greens located here provide experiences of great quality and scenic and environmental beauty, attracting golfers from all over the world, the executive decided to approve it at the last Meeting of Chamber, a Vote of Congratulation, in order to publicly congratulate the company for this feat.
The project “Museological Market for Slaves” project presented in competition by the Municipality of Lagos was accepted and selected in the competition, in the Events category. Also from Lagos, the traditional Nossa Senhora do Forte Festival, which takes place every year, at the Municipal Museum, was selected in this same category.
