Food as a tourist attraction

AWARD: Vicent Llorca Lloret, “padrino” of last year’s gastronomic events.

BENIDORM’S recently announced Gastronomic Calendar 2015 includes three new events.

The first will be the third TurgastroUA gathering, organised by Alicante University’s Tourist Studies department and scheduled for next March.

Another addition is La Nostra Cuina (Our Cooking) to be held in June and a Trampantojo (trompe-l’oeil) competition – also in June – that involves preparing food which is edible but resembles something entirely different.


It was essential to boost the town’s gastronomy, which is increasingly important when choosing a holiday destination, said Benidorm’s Tourism councillor Gema Amor during the formal presentation of this year’s calendar.
