New religious tourism project on Trappist Abbeys

A new religious tourism project has been launched in Italy. Abbeys of Trappist monks in Northern Europe and the attractions surrounding them are the central theme of the TATRA initiative.

TATRA – “Tastes of Trappists” – is a fifteen-month project partially financed by the European Program for Competition and Innovation (CIP), realized by a consortium of seven partner states including Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany and Italy.

The project, designed to boost slow tourism by highlighting cycle paths and hikes, aims to create tourist itineraries focused on culture, gastronomy and wine in the areas surrounding Trappist abbeys in Northern Europe, most of which are currently closed to public.
