THE Foreign Residents Office of Rincon de la Victoria has launched a programme of excursions for visitors to learn about its main tourist attractions.
Starting on February 2, a tour programme called ‘Conoceme’ (Get to know me) will begin in the village.
The project has been designed to offer foreign residents and locals alike a fun way to know more about their town, as was explained by head of the office, Carmen Millan.
It would “involve the foreign community in the town’s everyday life, allowing them to learn about the tourism on offer and the public services they could benefit from,” said Mayor Francisco Salado.
The programme offers free excursions from Mondays to Fridays in a morning schedule around the main interesting points, with information in Spanish, English and French.
The first tour (February 2), will take participants to the Torre de Benagalbon, the Ecological Path of Los Rubios, the Añoreta golf course and the Torre Almenara.
Plans for Tuesday (February 3) are to visit the Treasure Cave of Rincon de la Victoria as well as El Cantal.
Wednesday (February 4) will focus on a walk across the town and a visit to the Casa Fuerte Bezmiliana, the town’s promenade, as well as the Virgen del Carmen patron saint.
On Thursday (February 5), visitors will be taken to Benagalbon to see the Popular Arts Museum, the church and the Plaza de las Flores, and they will be able to enjoy tapas across the town’s restaurants.
The last day (February 6) will be used to visit Cala del Moral with a walk across its promenade, the Mare Nostrum Room and the Casa de la Cultura.
Departures for all excursions will take place at around 11am and tours will last around three hours. Those interested do not have to register to participate and all excursions will be free, apart from transport, tickets to the Treasure Cave and the Arts Museum.
More information can be found at the Foreign Residents Office located at the town’s Tourism Office in Paseo Maritimo Virgen del Carmen, open between 9am and 2pm.
