The La Herradura market in Almuñecar has begun its transformation into the first gourmet centre on the Costa Tropical.

Work has started on what will be the first Gourmet Market on the Costa Tropical, in La Herradura, and it will also house a Tourist Interpretation Centre.

The project is being carried out with an investment of 150,000 euros from the Regional Ministry of Tourism of the Andalucian Government and a contribution of 50,000 euros from the Town Hall.

The site was visited last week by Daniel Barbero, councillor for Tourism, and Juan José Ruiz Joya, first deputy mayor of La Herradura. Barbero thanked the Regional Ministry of Tourism and the Junta de Andalucía and said: “It will be a few months of very intense work and we are sure that there will be problems, but we will be working very hard to resolve any setbacks as quickly as possible. We have a bit of an advantage because the basement has already been repaired, so everything will be easier and very soon we will have the La Herradura Gourmet Market and the Tourist Interpretation Centre open.”
