DENIA PROJECT: (l to r) Cristina Selles, AEHTMA president, Vicent Grimalt and Francesc Colomer.
THE regional government repeated an earlier pledge to assist Denia in fulfilling its tourism potential.
The first was made when Ximo Puig, the Valencian Community’s regional president made his first official visit to Denia earlier this month.
The second came from Francesc Colomer, the Generalitat’s regional secretary for Tourism, during the Fitur tourism fair in Madrid. The Marina Alta town embodies the type of town and tourism that the Valencian Community wants and needs, Colomer declared.
“Denia exemplifies the new values that the region represents and is a spearhead for the new tourism model that Valencianos want,” he declared during the presentation of the town’s Unesco Creative Gastronomic City project in Madrid.
Denia received Unesco recognition last December and will develop the Denia & Marina Alta Tasting programme over the next four years. This is based on respect for tradition, sustainability in producing local raw materials with a groundbreaking combination of science and cuisine.
Denia’s mayor Vicent Grimalt has now made contact with Burgos, Spain’s only other Creative Gastronomic City, and both with work in joint ventures putting Denia and Valencia at the forefront in network of creative cities, Colomer said.
