World Tourism Day Malaga

Next Monday 27th September 2021 is World Tourism Day and to celebrate this special occasion, Malaga Town Hall, in conjunction with the city’s main museums and monuments, has prepared a special events programme.

This initiative – promoted by the World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) – aims to raise awareness of the important impact tourism has on countries and communities around the world; socially, culturally, politically and economically. This year’s event goes under the following slogan: Tourism for Inclusive Growth.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has had a massive social and economic impact. Both developed and developing economies have been hit. And marginalized groups and the most vulnerable have been hit hardest of all. The restart of tourism will help kickstart recovery and growth. It is essential that the benefits this will bring are enjoyed widely and fairly” – www.un.org

To celebrate this unique day, many of Malaga’s top tourist attractions will be celebrating an ‘Open Day’ with free entrance – at certain times of the day – to their facilities for all who visit. Some of the participating museums and monuments will also offer free guided tours (see below for details). Some of these guided tours will be in high demand so we recommend you turn up early to avoid disappointment.
