- The ‘Discover San Fulgencio’ app will provide useful information to tourists, visitors and residents alike
The San Fulgencio Town Council this morning presented the mobile application ‘Discover San Fulgencio’. A new initiative of the Department of Tourism which aims to “promote the town and provide information about the municipality to those who visit us during the summer months,” said Darren Parmenter, councillor responsible for the area.
The app features information on the history of the town and places of interest, as well as a directory of bars, restaurants, shops and local businesses, which allows direct bookings to be made at these establishments. In addition, “all those establishments that wish to appear in this database can do so and submit an application through the questionnaire that they will find in the same application,” said the councillor.
However, the app will not only be aimed at tourists and visitors. “San Fulgencio has a considerable number of year-round residents, and it is another way of getting information to them,” he said. “There are many people who don’t follow social networks or local news, but almost everyone has a mobile phone and is familiar with using these applications,” he added. For this reason, it also includes useful information for citizens, such as useful telephone numbers, bus timetables and up-to-date information on local festivals and activities. For his part, Tomás Hernández, delegate of the company that developed the app, pointed out that it is translated into four languages (Spanish, English, French and German) to provide greater accessibility to people of different nationalities, “as well as being very intuitive and easy to use, both for young people accustomed to new technologies and for older people”, and is available for download from the usual mobile application platforms.
The mayor of San Fulgencio, José Sampere, said that this initiative is “another idea to put us on the map and remind people who we are and where we are, especially after the last two years of the pandemic, which has led to restrictions on tourism and travel”. Sampere also pointed out that “we hope that this new promotional tool will help us to promote San Fulgencio and its urbanisations as a tourist and residential destination, as well as serving our businesses and establishments as an opportunity for economic growth and visibility”.
