Ares in Fitur-----Redes Arquitecture----Ares Spot-----Norway in Ares-
In the last years, Ares has become a place of reference for many of the Norwegian families that, due to their jobs, had to move to the area. In fact, about 50% of the Norwegians linked to the construction of the frigates in Ferrol by Navantia lived, or presently do, in Ares. The Council thought that it was about time for Ares to appreciate the involvement and model behaviour of these families, and counting on the distinguished collaboration of the Norwegian Embassy and the Spanish Board of Tourism, and also the Norwegian Navy itself, in June 2008, a whole week with different activities was organized in order to make known the culture and tourist potentials of the Nordic country, and to tie the bonds already existing between the two communities. And so it was born the Norwegian Week, a resounding success called for having continuity in time, and that had as a climax a mass feast, where traditional Norwegian dishes were served, Norway and Ares music was played, and counted on the presence of the Mayor of Ares, The Norwegian Ambassador, the Ministry of Presidency of the Xunta de Galicia (regional government), the Mayor of Ferrol, etc.
