The head of the Senate, Manuel Blasco, has cited this initiative as one that would encompass the National Strategy against Depopulation, which Pablo Casado announced in his visit to Teruel

The tourism sector has become fundamental in the city of Teruel, which has seen how this activity is generating numerous jobs and opportunities among its inhabitants. Love, its historical and cultural heritage, as well as food, are attractions that are making the capital of the province one of the places with the highest influx of visitors in the interior Spain.

For this reason and given the possibilities it can offer throughout the territory, the head of the Senate list by the Popular Party, Manuel Blasco, has opted for a Teruel Tourism Strategy that "values ​​the many attractions of the province." He has done so in a public appearance in the Plaza del Torico where he has been accompanied by the number two of the lists to the Congress of Deputies and the Senate, Raquel Clemente and Carmen Pobo.

This initiative that has influenced Blasco was one of the proposals publicly announced by the president of the Popular Party, Pablo Casado, during his visit to Teruel and that would be included in the National Strategy against Depopulation, which would also include maternity assistance, to entrepreneurship or broadband extension.

The candidate for the Upper House recalled that the OECD claimed years ago that the province of Teruel had two sectors with many possibilities for the future: tourism and agribusiness. That is why it has been considered “essential” that this strategy be implemented “which should have a provincial character” and whose financing should come from the Teruel Investment Fund.

"In the province of Teruel, difficulties can become opportunities," Blasco said, while indicating that many areas of Spain "are taking advantage of tourism as an engine of economic development." An area in which the province of Teruel "has nothing to be ashamed of", but "many very interesting resources that must be put in value for the creation of jobs and to establish population."


The 'popular' candidate has also stressed that "where many see difficulties, the PP sees opportunities." And he has put as an example the work carried out in the capital of the province in recent years, where “we have shown that with tourism you could turn around the economic situation of the city”, making it a place “with many jobs in this sector ”.

With the example of the work already done, Blasco has asked to extrapolate this work also to the entire territory of the province because "it has a large number of historical, heritage, natural and gastronomic attractions." "We have made a first analysis of the ten regions and in all of them there are many possibilities that are worth launching," he added.

The history of the Maestrazgo or its rich natural environment, the linking of the city of Alcañiz with the engine, the use of mining facilities in the province, the possibilities of the Albarracín or Gúdar-Javalambre mountain ranges, the Matarraña, its nature and gastronomy, etc. Thus up to ten regions have been cited by Blasco to exemplify future possibilities for the entire territory of Turolense.


Already in the afternoon, the candidates of the Popular Party of Teruel, with the number one to Congress and the Senate, Alberto Herrero and Manuel Blasco, respectively, at the head, have moved to Lower Aragon for the celebration of the Fiesta de la Villa of Alcorisa. A commemoration in which the town returns to the Golden Age and celebrates the conversion into a municipality, ceasing to be a village dependent on Alcañiz.

A commemoration that has also been set as an example by Blasco of the actions that can be undertaken in many places in Teruel. He has stressed that the province "has a rich history" that "we can spread not only to the inhabitants of the territory, but also to the visitors who see in these historical-cultural proposals reasons more than enough to come to know us and to enter our municipalities".
