La Ponte is an ecomuseum, managed by the local people, in which the heritage is institutionalised and the values of respect of the rural communities and their culture are transmitted. Besides, it is a place for encounters, learning and revitalisation, in which there are different components, such as research, workshops and other kind of activities, and in which it is possible to reflect on the problems of our surroundings. The ecomuseum works as a network, open to collaboration with other institutions.

La Ponte es un ecomuseo gestionado por población local donde se socializa el patrimonio cultural y se transmiten valores de respeto hacia las comunidades rurales y su cultura. Es además un espacio de encuentro, aprendizaje y dinamización donde se investiga, se realizan talleres y otro tipo de actividades, y donde se reflexiona sobre los problemas de nuestro entorno. El ecomuseo funciona como una red abierta a la colaboración con otras organizaciones.
