SUSTAINABLE TOURIST PACKAGE TO FACE THE DECLINE OF THE TOURISM DEMAND IN GRIEGOS (TERUEL), SPAIN

Within the SusTowns project, in collaboration with FAMCP, the municipality of Griegos developed a tourist package which consists of high-altitude weekends, each with a different theme. The initiative is based on the idea that Griegos is the second highest municipality in Spain, and it is an exceptional territory to develop sustainable tourism through the concept of organized thematic weekends.

The tourism promotional plan developed in Griegos consists of high altitude weekends, each with a different theme. This initiative is based on the idea that Griegos is the second highest municipality in Spain, and it is an exceptional territory with amazing high altitude resources to develop sustainable tourism in the area through this concept of organized thematic weekends. The first of them has been a weekend of literary height, a "slam poetic rural", basically aimed at people who write. In addition, this is an idea that is of great cultural interest that may draw the attention of other types of tourists, apart from those who love reading. 

 

In this case literature has been the main aspect, not as a literary contest, but as a place to feel the inspiration to write and meet with other people who also love writing. The idea was to write stories and poems beforehand and throughout the weekend, choose a theme and write a piece of writing. 

 

The general programme is simple and includes a variety of activities that can be carried out over 3 days: 

1) Friday afternoon: reception, program delivery and dinner. 

2) Saturday: several activities throughout the day, such as a visit to the trenches or the butterfly museum. In the afternoon, the specific literary activity. 

3) Sunday: prize-giving ceremony and ends after lunch. 

Visitors had free time to enjoy their visit without rushing. 

 

This tourist package allows people to take care of the territory and to develop appropriate activities that attract a public that respects and understands the uniqueness of Griegos. 

We are not looking for mass tourism, but tourism appropriate to the existing population, less than 150 people, which is integrated into local life and allows us to maintain the image of a small rural village, in the middle of nature and not overcrowded.

●      Two nights accommodation (Friday and Saturday), accommodation and breakfast – Welcome dinner on Friday

●      Round table ‘’metric and writing’’
