Three photographers from Ourense and three Portuguese documented the course of the river from its source in Monte Talariño, in Sarreaus, to its mouth in Viana del Castelo
The activity is part of the Fronteira Esquecida project, co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) through the INTERREG V A Spain-Portugal Programme (POCTEP) 2014-2020
The House of Culture and Youth of the City Council of Xinzo de Limia hosts until 29 July the exhibition “Forgotten Border. Itinerario Fotográfico Río Limia-Lima”, with the best photographs of the professional photographers who documented the cross-border itinerary outlined, on the Galician side, by the Diputación de Ourense through the 11 Galician municipalities bathed by the Limia-Lima River.
This action is framed within the Forgotten Border project, 75% co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) through the Interreg V Spain-Portugal Programme (POCTEP) 2014-2020, whose main objective is to enhance the natural and cultural resources of the Limia-Lima River, and its surroundings, and on that basis to create and develop a joint management and promotion structure that enhances the tourist use of the area.
As part of the activities of this project, this photographic itinerary was created, which now leads to the exhibition “Limia-Limia River. Flow of emotions”, and that after being in the Marcos Valcárcel Cultural Centre in Ourense arrives at the House of Culture and Youth of the City Council of Xinzo de Limia. The travelling exhibition collects the best images of the territory that bathes the Limia-Lima river, from its source in Monte Talariño (Sarreaus) to its mouth in Viana del Castelo, made by Portuguese professionals -Pedro Cerquera, Eduardo Pimenta and Miguel Costa- and Ourense -Paco Rocha, Rosa Veiga and Miguel Souto-.
