Guided tours and new attractions brochure helps La Orotava sustainability
La Orotava has been taking further steps towards becoming a sustainable tourist resort.
The Mayor Francisco Linares and councillor for tourism, Delia Escobar said the municipality wanted to become better known for caring for its visitors both from the islands and further a-broad. On September 27th, everyone visiting La Orotava was being invited to take part in free guided tours around the historic centre, especially following the route of the gofio mills, and at the same time joinng in a gastro workshop on this typical product.
The routes – with patrimonial, ethnographic, cultural and historical value – were to be conducted in English and Spanish, led by professional guides of the company CanariaenRuta.
Reservations may still be possible on 922323041 or via the mail firstname.lastname@example.org (if you have caught this article in time).
The council has also been holding training days for local businesses into sustainable tourism ie offerings which have the least possible impact on the environment.
The Mayor said it is intended to have and maintain a seal of quality so that La Orotava will become a sustainable tourist destination.
The municipal representatives took the opportunity to present the new tourist brochure with a map of the urban centre and brief information on more than 50 emblematic spaces and places of interest that can be visited.
La Orotava organises guided routes at other times of the year as well, including for groups, so all those interested might like to get in touch with the tourism office.
