The European Commission delegation announced that the archeological site of Nemea, in the Peloponnese, would be receiving the European Cultural Heritage Award.
The European Cultural Heritage Awards/Europa Nostra Awards highlight notable works, initiatives and personalities in the cultural heritage field.
These sites have played an important role in the history and culture of Europe and in the conception of the European Union.
The EU rewards achievements in the field of cultural heritage in four main categories such as maintenance, research, special service for the preservation of cultural heritage, education, training and awareness-raising in Europe’s cultural heritage.
The distinctive honour that is being given to the archeological site is set to be a statement not only for Corinth, but the whole Region of the Peloponnese
