Jaen Provincial Council allocated 35,000 Euros to improve tourist infrastructure in two municipalities of the Cazorla Region, specifically Quesada and Huesa.
Manuel Fernandez, second vice president and deputy in Promotion and Tourism, addressed these mayors --Angel Padilla from Huesa and Manuel Vallejo from Quesada. Fernandez stated that the Provincial Administration will undertake actions with a total value of more than 35,000 euros and that it is "expected that they will become a reality within the next months".
This will allow Huesa to condition its trails, and Quesada to improve their tourist signage. These are two initiatives that were "subsidized by the Provincial Council in the framework of our 2017 appeal for tourist infrastructures", as explained by the deputy in Promotion and Tourism.
Huesena will receive a planned intervention of approximately 20,000 euros. Manuel Fernandez stated that the plan is to create a network of trails that can be adapted and signedposted in Huesena. He also said that a signaling system would be created in Huesa's approach to the Nasrid Cistern. This is in the area called "the street of Moors", with the goal of highlighting this historical gap and allowing people to learn more about the Nasrid civilization'sa.
Fernandez also stated that this philosophy is meant to take advantage of "the opportunities of a municipality which has, on one hand, an impressive nature wealth and the potential of promoting a whole range of activities around active tourist that today in day generates immense opportunities to bring a lot of tourists and family tourism, that seeks adventure and knowledge of the natural world that the Sierras de Cazorla Segura and Las Villas Natural Park also have.
Huesa was the first to take part in this action. The Diputacion's tourist manager has proposed this Saturday that the improvement of tourist signage in Quesada be done. "To which a subsidy in the amount of 16,000 euros has been also been given." This consistory has been granted the Diputacion's call.
Fernandez also stated that with this item, the existing information panels will be replaced, restored, and relocated to promote Quesada's image as a tourist destination. This will ensure that potential tourists have a good idea of the many historical, cultural, and natural attractions the town has.
Fernandez stated that the tourist signage will be in place for different areas of the municipality. It will include the Arco de los Santos del Senor to the walls and the church of San Pedro, San Pablo, the Rafael Zabaleta Museum, Miguel Hernandez, and "absolutely extraordinary natural spots such Canada de las Fuentes and El Chorro as well as Cueva del Agua".
