The city of Almeria is vying for the title of Spanish Gastronomic Capital 2019 by promoting its tradition of tapas.
Signing an agreement to build a ‘Tapas Route’, the City Council of Almeria and local Association of Hoteliers (ASHAL) hope it will prove to be a distinctive Andalusian tourist interest.
President of ASHAL, Diego Garcia said the agreement will provide external technical and professional assistance to ASHAL as well as help promote Almería’s bid.
Supporters now wait in hope that the Junta de Andalucía will officially declare the Almeria Tapas Route of Regional Tourist Interest.
“We deserve it, we meet the requirements and bring many good things to Almeria,” said Mayor of Almeria, Ramón Fernández-Pacheco.
