The Tenerife Cabildo is thrilled to have won the Premio Nacional de Artesanía 2015 for promoting arts and crafts. The national awards, now in their tenth year, are prestigious in the arts and crafts field, and the Cabildo’s victory shows that on a country-wide level, it is giving artisanry in the island more support and assistance than any authority elsewhere in Spain. The award was presented to Tenerife president Carlos Alonso in the gala ceremony held yesterday in the Salón de Actos del Ministerio de Industria, Energía y Turismo, Madrid.
