DCB – Turismo y Desarrollo Local has been working in recent months with Sant Pere Pescador’s council in the preparation of a territorial and tourism dynamization program for the town. The study, co-financed by the SOC (Occupation Service of Catalonia), proposes a work program which will allow the village to improve its tourist position, projecting an image of Sant Pere associated to its territorial and cultural values, backing the creation of new tourist products and supporting the economic and social nets.
The report specifies the strategy and actions to be developed, but a Reception and Information Handbook to the Visitor has also been created to be applied immediately in the Tourist Office and information points. During the drafting period, two candidacy preparation dossiers have been given support. These are the FEDER and PLADETUR programs.
Attraction all year-round and prestige
The village’s main values and elements of attraction are the importance of the campsite sector and the leadership position light sailing sports. The report underlines that there are other products that, in spite of being a minority, that complement main products (sun, beach and light sailing sports). These are walking trips, biking, ecotourism and others, which make good use of the qualities of the Natural Park but also of the environment, with its wellkept agrarian landscapes. These minor products help to decentralize the season, but mostly they contribute to add prestige to the area, requiring a very high quality of landscapes and the environment.
Five action fields
The report proposes a program of 42 actions to be developed in short and midterm, distributed in five work fields. These are the Reception and information of the visitor (7 actions); Promotion (11 actions); Management of land resources and the quality of services (10 actions); Financial promotion, formation and occupation (8 actions); and Programs of support to the local development strategy (6 actions).
