As every year and as every January, Fitur returns , the International Tourism Fair held at the Ifema fairgrounds in Madrid. On Wednesday January 19 will open the curtain on this event that we can enjoy until Sunday January 23. Galicia, of course, will be present, showing all its tourist potential and, of course, with the Camino de Santiago as the main protagonist.

The great value of Galicia, and of all

Three words: Camino de Santiago. With great pride and passion, Galicia will be present at Fitur carrying the Camino de Santiago by flag, a value and tourist asset of great importance for the autonomous community, as well as for others. Moreover, in an extended Jacobean year 2022 that, after a 2021 of recovery due to the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, with about 180,000 compostelas issued, is expected to be a new year of record in influx of pilgrims, as it had been until 2019.

On Monday, January 10, the manager of the Galician Tourism Agency, Emilio de la Iglesia, presented the proposal of Galicia as a tourist destination and, in particular, emphasizing the Camino de Santiago. At the presentation, held at the Palacio de Congresos y Exposiciones de Galicia in Santiago de Compostela, de la Iglesia highlighted Galicia’s leadership in the national tourism recovery, ranking well above the average. In this 42nd edition of the fair, Galicia will insist that it is a safe tourist destination, as it did in 2021 and, in the words of de la Iglesia, “it will do so again in 2022”.
