Celebrate World Tourism Day on the Costa Blanca 2020

Creating opportunities outside the big cities and preserving the cultural and natural heritage around the world is the objective that the World Tourism Organization seeks to highlight this year and for this in this edition it has focused the celebration of DMT2020 on the slogan ‘Tourism and rural development’.

The Costa Blanca joins this precious initiative and its municipalities have organized a series of activities to enhance and promote their rural environments. Guided tours, routes, gastronomic days and cultural events that, complying with all safety and hygiene measures, seek to highlight the importance of developing and defending our natural and rural spaces.
