MADRID, 23 (EUROPE PRESS)
The Minister of Culture, Tourism and Sports of the Community of Madrid, Marta Rivera de la Cruz, has asserted this Saturday that the region’s tourism sector is “very lively” with the forecasts for the May bridge and the celebration of San Isidro .
The counselor, who has visited the Antonio Machado bookstore this Saturday on the occasion of Book Day, has recognized that the May bridge “should be very good” because “there is a lot of activity in Madrid”, like San Isidro, but “not dares to make predictions”.
Likewise, he has expressed his “surprise” after the “cheerful hangover” of the Easter holidays to verify that the occupancy forecasts had exceeded his expectations. “There was an occupancy forecast of around 71%, it exceeded 82%”, she explained.
“In the pre-pandemic we were at 84%, that is, we can speak of a practically total recovery, which is very commendable because I remember again, and I always say it, Asia is still closed to tourism, so being at pre-pandemic levels with this situation really It is very good news”, the counselor concluded.
