The objective of this event is to strengthen ties and promote coexistence between people of different nationalities residing in Torremolinos.

The event was presented by the town’s mayor, Margarita del Cid, who pointed out that Torremolinos is home to almost 125 different nationalities.

“This enormous cultural diversity has shaped the character of Torremolinos for many years, and I am convinced that it is decisive for the future. Torremolinos welcomes everyone with open arms, and we are experiencing a significant growth in the population, part of which is due to those residents who register on the census,” the mayor said.
