THE SATE, Almuñecar’s Foreign Tourists Attention Service, helped dozens of visitors in the months of July and August.
According to the performance report released by the Commerce and Tourism department led by Rafael Caballero, more than 50 tourists used these services, either for information requests or to file official reports after having fallen victim to a crime.
In July and August, a Guardia Civil and Local Police officer remained permanently in this office, located in the La Najarra palace. In addition, the service was aided by the help of interpreters who translated to French, German, English and Arabic.
“Our main goal was to permanently increase safety in tourism areas,” said Mr Caballero.
“The safety of our residents and visitors is one of the main priorities for the local government,” said Mayor Trinidad Herrera.
