In 2016 the Portuguese Government launched “REVIVE”, a programme that aims to attract private investment to state heritage properties throughout the country. The aim is to convert them to a business associated to the hospitality, cultural and/ or entertainment industry. Under public tender, the concessions have a duration of up to 50 years. All the properties in this programme can be accessed here:
