Vicente Garcia Egea is the territorial delegate of Tourism of the Board of Almeria. He highlighted the "large range of active or nature tourism" available in the province, as well as "remote and remote municipalities" that offer "unique and personal experiences" in close contact with nature, away from the crowds of other destinations. Almeria is more than sun and beaches. There are many options within the interior segment. For example, Urracal is a place where you can hike, visit charming enclaves, and take in the breathtaking views of the Almanzora Valley.
After meeting with Emilia Mateos (the mayor), the territorial delegate made these statements. She has also detailed the tourism resources and other projects this small town, with just 300 residents, has. It is located south-east of the Sierra of Estancias in the Almeria region.
Garcia Egea has highlighted the strategic position of the town as well as its morphology, which shapes the farmhouse's immediate surroundings. Urracal's unique urban organization was created through the interaction of different civilizations. The appearance of Urracal is unique and magical, despite its steep and twisty streets. The white facades stand out and the narrow streets and the majestic church transport the visitor to a past that was flourishing.
After a visit to the municipality by the head of Tourism, the mayor also appreciated the active and sport tourism offered by the local population. Urracal's main attraction is its walk to the Lavadero. It's a wonderful natural remedy for daily stress. There are two important places to be aware of: El Estrecho on the Rambla Salada, near the town, and Mirador de La Cerra, one of those balconies with stunning views of the Almanzora Valley>>.
Garcia Egea used the opportunity to meet with Urracal's councilor to remind him of the commitment made by this ministry, which is directed and managed by Vice President Juan Marin. "Tourism plays a vital role in the development of our cities and ensuring their well-being. This activity generates wealth, opportunities and employment and is a great way to combat the decline of inland towns.
After recalling Urracal's industrial and cultural past, Garcia Egea highlighted the various tools and aids that the Ministry of Tourism provides to municipalities and businesses in the sector in order to grow and protect the competitiveness of destinations, promote local resources, and attract tourists, particularly in this time of economic recovery following the pandemic.
"We work tirelessly, in coordination with different administrations. Promoting and promoting actions which improve the quality our tourist offer such as the Andalucia Segura’ badge, among other things," concluded the territorial delegate to Tourism in Almeria.
