He commented that due to the promotional actions that have been carried out, suddenly more tourists than expected began to arrive, even in the next few days various national media will arrive in Valladolid to make live broadcasts of various programs, in which they will continue promoting the tourist sites of the city.

On August 14 and 25 there will be live broadcasts from Valladolid, even a newscast from a national media will do its program in this city. Therefore there are good expectations regarding the increase in tourism in the coming days.

For their part, city hotel owners considered that an increase in occupancy of up to 80% is expected for this weekend, and the same percentage would be registered in the gastronomic sector, so that all the restaurateurs are happy, at least the members of their group.
