Helena Barril also added that the assembly of the construction site for the hotel will start at the end of this year, with a deadline of about two and a half years for the completion of the tourist equipment.

“There were other consultations by several interested parties to this initiative to transfer the surface rights, but the winner was the Vila Galé hotel group,” said the Mirandese mayor.

Contacted by Lusa, the Vila Galé group confirms that it participated in a tender that is still taking place within the legal deadlines.
