In 2023 are celebrated the 250th anniversary of the elevation of Figueira da Foz to the status of a village and the 140th anniversary of its elevation to city.

We must know how to celebrate what is important to us and it is only right to pay tribute to Figueira da Foz itself, as a county, to its birth, to its identity, to the affirmation and formalization of its ties.

Figueira da Foz meets all the requirements to receive a Worldtour cycling event, continuing the great cycling race started in 1929 called “A Volta dos Campeões” (“The Return of Champions”) and simultaneously honoring a man borned in Figueira da Foz, who was one of the best Portuguese cyclists: António da Silva Barbosa.

As mayor of the municipality, we see this event as a way to affirm our territory and the Figueira da Foz brand worldwide, we intend to have a unique event in Class 1.1 in 2023 and  Pro Series 2024 and 2025 , that we want to guarantee for the triennium 2023-2024 and 2025.
