ADPM – Mértola Heritage Defense Association aims to contribute to the economic, social and cultural development of the municipality of Mértola, sourced on the conservation, dynamization and valorization of local resources, by involving the local population and public and private entities in the region for improving living conditions and quality of life of communities.

The projects developed individually or in partnership, in Portugal and in other countries, give ADPM a transnational dimension, which enriches the local experience. In a logic of “Think Global – Acting Local”, we understand multiculturalism and diversity as the basis for the development of peoples.
