Big Q for Ali­cante's MARQ

Costa Blanca News (South Edition) - - News -

ALI­CANTE ar­chae­ol­ogy mu­seum (MARQ) has be­come the first mu­seum in Spain to ob­tain the Q for qual­ity tourism cer­tifi­cate, an­nounced the pro­vin­cial gov­ern­ment.

This dis­tinc­tion, which is awarded by the in­sti­tute for qual­ity Span­ish tourism (ICTE), eval­u­ates the or­gan­i­sa­tion, ser­vices and fa­cil­i­ties of es­tab­lish­ments in the sec­tor.

The MARQ re­ceived an ex­cel­lent rat­ing, with all of its ser­vices that were eval­u­ated re­ceiv­ing a score of 9.8 out of 10.

Pro­vin­cial deputy for cul­ture, César Au­gusto Asen­cio said: “It is a great pride both for the cen­tre and the prov­ince, as it sup­ports and vouches for the ex­tra­or­di­nary man­age­ment and ser­vices of­fered by the MARQ, which are also recog­nised at an international level.”

Among other as­pects, the in­spec­tion au­dited how well the MARQ plans its ac­tiv­i­ties, its ac­ces­si­bil­ity, in­for­ma­tion and at­ten­tion to vis­i­tors, safety sign­post­ing, ex­hi­bi­tion spa­ces, park­ing and shop, as well as its de­vel­op­ment in har­mony with the environment. The MARQ’s com­bi­na­tion of sci­en­tific and in­ves­tiga­tive rigour with ex­pla­na­tions in lan­guage everyone can un­der­stand en­ables it to in­crease its at­ten­dance fig­ures year af­ter year.
