Franco y el Bikini (Franco, beaches and Benidorm tourism)
In this resource, students learn about an interesting man who was the mayor of Benidorm during the Franco dictatorship. It includes reading comprehension and grammar activities with common Spanish expressions and vocab.

The story of Zaragoza’s battle to convince Franco to permit the use of bikinis on the Spanish coast, and thus start the tourism boom, will give students a glimpse of the conservatism of the era.
