The territorial delegate of Tourism, Vicente García Egea, has visited Taberno, where he met with the mayor, Antonio Martos, to highlight the tourist excellence of this municipality in the Almanzora Valley region. “Taberno brings together a number of elements that make up a unique and interesting offer, with different proposals for active tourism, experiences and nature that make it a top quality inland destination”.
García Egea, who has toured the town in the company of the mayor, has highlighted the efforts made by this town to diversify its offer to visitors, with “experiences” such as the initiative ‘Feel like a farmer for a day’, which allows children and families to learn about the daily life of a farm feeding the animals, milking and even making cheese; the cultural routes to learn about the heritage and history of Taberno, which cover the Plaza Mayor, the church of Calvario and the Museo del Campo; the 4×4 routes; or other activities “for sports lovers” offered by active tourism companies.
In this regard, he recalled the layout of trails that run through such varied landscapes, ranging “from semi-desert terrain to lush landscapes”; and, finally, he has not forgotten the local cuisine, “with artisan products such as torta de chicharrones or homemade black pudding, made by local companies, which also conquer the visitor’s stomach”.
For García Egea, all this makes Taberno “a destination with a complete tourist offer”, which the Regional Ministry led by Juan Marín seeks to promote, together with the other municipalities in the region. “Taberno is betting heavily on the tourism industry, and working in a coordinated manner all administrations to get private investors to, among other things, increase the number of accommodation places, which have grown quite a lot but still need more”.
The delegate encouraged the municipality to “continue working tirelessly and in a personalised way to strengthen the tourist resources in order to further enhance its offer, and, in this way, attract new travellers, break with seasonality and fight against depopulation”, while stressing, by way of conclusion, that “active tourism is an ally of the inland areas after the pandemic, as travellers now opt for larger, natural and less crowded places”.
Finally, he explained that the Regional Ministry, headed by Juan Marín, has made “a qualitative leap” with the recent approval of the General Plan for Sustainable Tourism for Andalusia, the META 2027 plan. “This is a basic tool to help the sector to transform and modernise the Andalusian tourism industry and enhance its role as a strategic and economic engine of the region, which has digitalisation, sustainability, accessibility and quality among its main pillars,” concluded García Egea.
