MOJACAR celebrated International Tourism Day by organising a series of guided visits through the historic old town.
The visits, offered in both Spanish and English, were organised by the town council and were free of charge for all participants. The council collaborated with the company Day Tours Almeria, whose official Almeria guides lead tours to the most well-known places in the province and also the less-visited traditional spots.
Points of interest such as the castle viewpoint and the city arch were among the most photographed points on the tour while the superb views from the Plaza Nueva allowed the participants to appreciate the town in a whole new perspective.
The Councillor for Tourism of Mojacar Town Council, Emmanuel Aguero, emphasised the importance of “promoting sustainable tourism”, which all of the town’s events strive towards.
He went on to state that his department, along with the town hall, “have been working in collaboration with the companies of Mojacar for a long time to achieves these aims and make our town an attractive place within the difficult and competitive world of the tourism industry”.
The town has seen an increase in international awards for tourism in recent years, such as Blue Flags and Tourist Quality Stamps, and is often included on lists of the most beautiful towns in Spain and the world.
