City, Costa and villages show tourists how much municipality has to offer

Councillor Sofía Álvarez has presented new tourist maps of Orihuela which the Town Hall has made to promote the historic city centre, religious heritage, beaches, gastronomy, golf and sport, culture, nature and fiestas.

Also by uniting Orihuela’s City, coast and villages on the same map the idea is to favour the integration of the municipality with a more dynamic and colourful image, “giving visitors an idea of how big the municipality is, and putting it in its context within Spain and Alicante province”, informed Álvarez.

5,000 copies of the map have been produced, which can be found at the Tourism Offices in the municipality.

She also explained that in the first four months of this year the average number of visits to the Tourism Offices in Orihuela City increased by about 15%. Hotel occupancy is 90% at the moment and has been an average of 80% since the start of the year, “which are very similar figures to cities like Benidorm, which is a national point of reference for tourism”, she revealed.
