The prettiest Spanish villages considered among world's best
A total of 44 villages located in various parts of Spain are now considered among the most beautiful villages on the planet.
There are a total of 44 villages located in various parts of the country that have been integrated into the Prettiest Villages in Spain Association.
Earlier this week, all of these ‘pueblos’ were automatically added to the World’s Prettiest Villages International Federation, which currently consists of 500 villages spread out across the globe, after their membership was confirmed.
Although the Spanish association applied for membership in 2012, it was only formally confirmed on Wednesday in Quebec, Canada, at the VI International Meeting of the Prettiest Villages in the World. At this meeting were representatives from other countries that also boast some of the world's prettiest villages, including France, Belgium, Italy, Japan and Russia.
Now that the Spanish association has been integrated into the larger federation, these Spanish villages will now be considered as some of the most beautiful villages on the planet.
This is a great step for Spain with regards to tourism, and it is hoped that strategies can be implemented between the various countries in order to promote new tourist routes across the globe.
And, already, so soon after its integration into the federation, it has been announced that Spain will host the VII assembly of the World’s Prettiest Villages International Federation in 2017, which will act as a platform for Spain to show all the international community what Spain has on offer.
