González also recalled the latest lines of work that are being developed to continue supporting the town, such as the implementation of the Sustainable Tourism Plan, the renewal of the signage on the route ‘From the cradle to the grave’ or the art exhibitions that have been held in the Church of the Annunciation or in San Juan de la Cruz, such as the current ‘De Claris Mulieribus’.
