AS southern Spain appears increasingly set for a new tourism boom, a delegation from Almuñecar-La Herradura has been dispatched to Granada in order to participate in a Tourism Congress, Thursday November 17.
At the event, the team will take part in a workshop alongside around 100 tour operators and travel agents who specialise in commercialising the cultural sector of the travel market. The Almuñecar group is being led by local Tourist Board director, Felipe Puertas, with the event comprising part of the inaugural International Forum for Cultural Tourism in Andalucia, organised by Turespaña and the Public Enterprise for the Management of Tourism and Sport in Andalucia.
In order to reinforce potentially lucrative contacts made during the workshop, a group of 15 congress participants, the majority travel agents, will visit Almuñecar-La Herradura on Friday, allowing them to sample the municipality’s rich cultural offerings first hand.
The guests of honour will receive a guided tour of the main historic sites, such as the aqueduct and Roman Baths.
