VRSA Historic CenterThe public tender for the design, adaptation into a tourist unit and operation of three properties located in the historic center of Vila Real de Santo António was reopened, after the winner of a first tender showed that he did not meet the required conditions.

In this way, the Chamber of VRSA and the municipal company Sociedade de Gestão Urbana (SGU) once again made the properties available to those interested in transforming them into “superior/charm hotels”, a measure that “is part of the package of tourist investments planned for the county'.

«Once recovered, the units are intended exclusively for tourist use, whose concept will be based on the history of Vila Real de Santo António, creating a new segment based on local heritage and culture», according to the Chamber of VRSA.

The buildings of Pombaline matrix are located in the heart of the historic area, protected by a Safeguard Detail Plan, where the reconstruction work of the historic Hotel Guadiana is already taking place.

The municipality recalled that this operation "is part of the strategy to recover the city's built heritage and will strongly contribute to the municipality's notoriety at national and international level, promoting the differentiation of the destination through superior quality and cultural tourism."

«The Historic Center of Vila Real de Santo António is currently an excellent example of XNUMXth century architecture and urbanism. It is a factory city, founded on Enlightenment ideals, whose importance is preserved in the Detailed Plan of Safeguarding the Pombalino Núcleo de VRSA, which led to the constitution of the first Urban Rehabilitation Area (ARU) in the country", concluded the autarchy .
