CONQUES GREAT SITE OF OCCITANIE

Following the experience of the « Great Sites in Midi-Pyrenees », the new region Occitanie unveiled the first list of touristic sites on the eve to become "Great Sites of Occitanie".
Conques belongs to the first round. To be admitted, the nominees must present a development strategy for their territory, while elaborating a transversal strategic project for 5 years, counting with the influence of this same territory, a guardian of stable activities and attractiveness.
The main objective of the process is to answer the travellers’ new concerns based on rich, unique and unusual experiences that give sense to their journey.
