Concept and production

This Web site was created using PrestaShop™ open-source software.

The information was collected using the internet websites, personal contacts, and published information.

The main concept of documentation of heritage is the stories behind every heritage, tradition and identity which we believe is what made us what we are now.

 

Ownership

We do not own the published information, but we are making an effort to gather and centralize the related data in one site.

We have just started and will abide by all legalization rules of publishing information related to people, establishments and heritage.
