Aragon presents all its tourist attractions at FITUR after more than a year marked by the pandemic.
Aragon Day is being celebrated today at the fair.
The Regional Minister of Education, Culture and Sport, Felipe Faci, and the Director General of Tourism, Elena Allué, took part in the institutional events for Aragon Day at FITUR.
Felipe Faci wanted to highlight “the natural areas that exist in Aragon, its unique tangible and intangible cultural heritage and its gastronomy with quality local products” which, he stressed, “make our community a sustainable and quality destination”. The Regional Minister of Education, Culture and Sport highlighted some of the events that are going to be held in the Region and throughout the country this year and which are closely related to the theme that Aragon is exhibiting at FITUR, such as the 275th anniversary of Goya, the centenary of Francisco Pradilla – of which an exhibition will be inaugurated next week at the Zaragoza Museum – and the celebration of the Jacobean Year. In addition, the Minister invited those present at FITUR to visit monasteries, castles, palaces and churches in Aragon, “one of our signs of identity in one of the autonomous regions with the greatest historical and cultural heritage”.
The Minister of Industry, Trade and Tourism of the Spanish Government, Reyes Maroto, also visited the Aragon stand and pointed out “the importance of protecting the tourism sector, which generates wealth and employment”. She was also optimistic about the expectations for this summer and encouraged Aragonese people to travel.
Afterwards, a video commemorating the 275th anniversary of Goya’s birth was shown, as well as another that relives the experience of walking the Camino de Santiago through Aragon before a blind tasting combined with a gastronomic experience. These are some of Aragon’s most outstanding bets at this edition of FITUR, aimed at recovering and reactivating the sector and reaffirming itself as a benchmark destination in terms of nature and sustainability.
For the first time, a virtual stand has been set up, which is a faithful reproduction of the physical stand and can be accessed via the link aragonvirtual.turismodearagon.com. There, from your computer or mobile device, you can interact with a simplified version of the exhibition space and view and attend live activities through the space itself or Youtube.
