LetsGoNorth meets LetsGoSouth
20 March 2015 @ 09:59

Competa has become the central point of a new tourism initiative, LetsGoNorth meets LetsGoSouth which aims to explore the historical and cultural links between Spain and Scotland.  The initiative started in 2014 and is already gaining momentum with Competa town hall being the first to allow the promoters to use their logo. 

There is a lot going on in Competa at the moment.  The new car park is being built, there is a great range of events planned for the summer, including the usual fiestas.  One of the local residents, Paco "Sindicato" Fernandez  has recently been intereviewed for the local press.  There are a number of new bars offering great food.  We are working on a tapas trail with a local magazine to promote on LetsGoSouth.

Competa businesses are delighted to be the centre of the LetsGoNorth meets LetsGoSouth initiative and already six businesses have signed up.  We are looking at doing a special event in October 2015 to link the north with the south... so watch this space for updates!

Competa has been selected as the epicentre of the initiative due to the writer's long association with the village - which has become a town.  It has recently featured on another high profile blog, along with Canillas de Albaida and Archez.

As a probable Scot from your comments, is there a Burns Supper in Competa. I'll bring my kilt!

Hi Sherryman, I am not a Scot... just an aficionada of Scotland - and Spain of course! There used to be a Burns Night supper in the Albaida restaurant in Canillas de Albaida (the next village) but sadly it closed!

Best regards.
