Got a sweet tooth? Then you’re in luck with sweet treats for Christmas in Huercal-Overa, Almería with a new initiative that let’s you taste typical huercalense treats, and churros, for just €1.50.
Mayor of Huércal-Overa, Domingo Fernández and the Councillor of Commerce of Huércal-Overa, Monica Navarro, have announced the first edition of “Sweet Christmas”, a new municipal initiative which aims to further bolster the local commerce of the town. It will be celebrated from Friday, December 16 until January 6. The announcement was made at El Horno, Pastelería Artesana, a house founded in 1910, and it was also attended by its manager, Antonia Gómez.
This new proposal allows huercalenses and visitors to taste typical Christmas sweets and churros for a special price of €1.50 with hot drink included (chocolate, coffee and infusions, among others) or sweet anise, in 11 establishments of the locality.
The Mayor stressed that “through this new proposal we are committed to maintaining the traditions with our rich pastries that are further encouraged at Christmas with the production of almond pastries and mantecados… we want our neighbors and visitors to enjoy our sweets every day”.
For her part, Monica Navarro said, “it is an activity that we have prepared with much affection and enthusiasm and that has been accepted with vigour by our town’s shops,” explaining that “with it we seek the cause-effect relationship, We promote an initiative, we advertise to the participating businesses and of course, we encourage people to go out and enter the businesses around us, for us it is a double satisfaction.”
The cafeterias and bakeries included in this first edition are the following:
- Cafetería-Pastelería Caramelo
- Churrería Ana
- Pastelería Artesana El Horno
- Pastelería La Noria
- Panadería Argentina
- Panadería Juanfran
- Cafetería Teatro
- Pastelería Isabel Asensio
- Repostería Latorre Simón
- Panadería Inés Asensio.
Like the already established Ruta de la Tapa, shoppers who so wish can collect the passport of the Navidad Dulce in the municipal offices and participating establishments. Once it is completed with the stamps of seven different businesses, they will have until January 6 to deposit in the authorised mailboxes in the participating establishments. The draw will be held on January 10 and the winner will receive a one-night hotel stay for two people, the second will receive a quarterly pass from the H2O sports centre and the third a €30 gift voucher for fuel at the OIL BAROL gas station.
