Spain wins Halal in Travel Award


SINGAPORE, 6 June 2022: Spain was recognised as this year’s “Top Muslim-Friendly Emerging Destination (non-IC)” at the Halal in Travel Awards 2022.

The “Halal in Travel Awards” celebrate and recognise the travel industry players’ efforts that significantly impacted the Muslim lifestyle travel segments.

This award acknowledges Spain’s outstanding efforts in enhancing halal awareness levels, consequently leading to an increase in halal-friendly services.

Present to receive the award were the Ambassador of Spain to Singapore, His Excellency Santiago Miralles, and Spain Tourism Board’s Director for Southeast Asia, Australia & New Zealand,  Monica Sanchez.

In his speech, Ambassador Miralles mentioned that the Muslim-friendly services offered in Spain continued to grow due to the close collaborative efforts between the public and private sectors.

Many hotels, restaurants and establishments in Spain adapt to meet the needs of Muslim travellers. Certain products and services also have the Halal Certification awarded by the Halal Institute, which guarantees that they meet the requirements demanded under Islamic law. The list of places with halal options in Spain where you can go to enjoy Spanish gastronomy is extensive. From small charming places to halal haute cuisine.

But aside from food, Spain also has some magnificent mosques, rich Islamic heritage, scenic landscapes, and buzzing cultural life.

Many Muslims choose cities like Cordoba and Granada to spend Ramadan because of the number of hours of sunlight. During Ramadan, some institutions such as the Casa Árabe, Cordoba City Council and the Halal Institute organise activities such as the Noches de Ramadán in Cordoba, a special programme of activities that includes films, workshops, talks, exhibitions and concerts.
