Again, Marbella continues to outperform itself. This time he hopes to become a national reference of gastronomy. And, if it succeeded, it would become the first non-provincial capital city to achieve it, since so far only capitals or autonomous communities have achieved it.

Ángeles Muñoz, mayor of Marbella, communicated it at the International Tourism Fair, FITUR, the recognized event they attended with gastronomy as the main claim.

Ángeles was accompanied by well-known people in the gastronomic field, such as Mauricio Giovanini, Francisco García, Fernando Alcalá, Lourdes Muñoz or María Asenjo among others. The mayor recalled that the gastronomic offer of Marbella is characterized by its breadth and variety, playing a strategic role in an increasingly competitive market. It should be noted, according to data from the Ministry of Tourism, that 10% of the total number of tourists who come to Spain to spend a few days, which are around 75 million, take into account the gastronomy when choosing their final destination.

Marbella has Michelin-starred restaurants, being the Andalusian city with the highest number of awards, in addition to a great gastronomic offer of high quality hotels, restaurants, bars and beach bars, making the town a unique culinary power.

He also thanked publicly those who from the gastronomic sector have made Marbella a name of reference. One of its objectives for this year is to achieve recognition of gastronomic capital. He firmly believes in his proposal thanks to the alliance between the local administration, gastronomic restaurants, industry partners and beach bars.

Gastronomy is one of the great complementary supports of Marbella, a brand that speaks for itself due to the strength of its positioning not only nationally, but internationally.

An event that stands out among those presented at Fitur is the renowned “Chefs for Children”, a charity activity that will be held on May 18 at the Los Monteros hotel. It will meet 30 Michelin star chefs with two objectives. On the one hand, highlight the importance of following a healthy diet and, on the other, collaborate with the Juegaterapia association, focused on making the day-to-day life of children who are on cancer treatment more bearable.
