The Tourist Accommodation Management training programme at Tolosa High School in La Línea de la Concepción has designed a tourism initiative called Bunker Inn Spain. Teachers and students are working on adapting the bunkers which are spread through the countryside of this town in Cádiz, to convert them into tourist accommodation.

Paqui and Manuel are two Sevillian teachers with great passion for their work and for cultural tourism. They always travelled a lot and when their children were born they asked themselves the big question: “And how do we do it now?” They decided to do some trips that would also be appealing to little Julia and Mario, through activities and educational games. This way, they were all able to enjoy the experience together. Now, as a result of this experience, they have launched Tiny City Explorers, an app for mobile devices with fun and educational content that promotes cultural tourism for families by making it more appealing for children.
