Spain Honored As Top Muslim-Friendly Emerging Destination of The Year


This award acknowledges Spain´s outstanding efforts in enhancing halal awareness level, 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, Ms. Monica Sanchez.

In his speech, H.E. Ambassador Miralles mentioned that the number of Muslim-friendly services offered in Spain has continued to grow as a result of the close collaborative efforts between the public and private sectors.

Many hotels, restaurants, and establishments in Spain adapt to meet the needs of Muslim travelers. Certain products and services have also 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 really beautiful mosques, rich Islamic heritage, scenic landscapes, and a 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 organize activities such as the Noches de Ramadán in Cordoba, a special program of activities that includes films, workshops, talks, exhibitions, concerts, etc.

All these and more make Spain as a great halal destination for unforgettable holidays.

  3. I haven't been to Spain in years but I am glad to hear that it is becoming such a destination for Muslims and everyone alike. I think it's important to have something for everyone but even more so, seeing other cultures included in a different country is always a welcome.
