RUSSIAN tourism journalists visited Almuñecar and La Herradura last weekend to learn about its main points of interest.
The five visitors, who work for different paper and on-line publications specialised in tourism, could confirm first-hand the town’s potential as a tourism destiny, thanks to its landscapes, cultural and historical attractions, gastronomy activities, as well as its hotel industry.
The visit, called ‘Press Trip’, was organised and coordinated by Almuñecar’s Municipal Tourism Department, whose members provided the journalists with a comprehensive dossier displaying the town’s main attractions.
Visitors had the chance to take part in a guided tour around the San Miguel Castle, the Archaeological Museum, the Botanic park ‘El Majuelo’, the La Najarra Palace, as well as the town’s historical centre.
“These initiatives are key to promote international tourism and display how exceptional Almuñecar really is,” said Mayor of the Town, Trinidad Herrera.
