The EIB invites you to take a cultural trip through a selection of ancient Mediterranean cities. They are not all, strictly speaking, "medinas", but the way in which they have developed and their richness in terms of heritage means that they have a shared Mediterranean kinship, extending to the extreme case of an "evolving" medina.

The route we shall take highlights the variety and complexity of the urban heritage regeneration processes, which, in addition to the technical and economic aspects, require that particular attention be paid to the human and social criteria – what the practitioners refer to as an "integrated approach".

The inclusion of these cities on UNESCO's World Heritage List has often been a crucial factor in raising awareness among those involved and strengthening the governance of these regeneration schemes.
