The national commemoration of the Day of the Most Beautiful Towns in Spain was held this week, and the residents of Tejeda in Gran Canaria commemorated this day with the raising of a flag on the façade of the City Council.
Since 2015, Tejeda in the centre of the island has been one of 68 towns in Spain that has received this recognition.
At this event, a manifesto was also read out that demanded increased local financing of local institutions and to improve services and transport.
In addition, a series of measures have been requested to prevent further depopulation in this area of the island.
Since 2015, Tejeda has used this recognition of one of the most beautiful town in Spain to improve its tourist image, its economic activity and has placed Tejeda on the tourist map, as a must-visit centre.
