Tourism in Spain


Although in 2009 the number of tourists visiting Spain dropped 8.7% in relation to the previous year due to the financial crises, figures are still very high: in 2009, Spain received 52.5 million tourists. And this is even more amazing if compared to Spanish demographics: in 2009, Spain had 45,989,016 inhabitants.
The UNWTO (United Nations World Tourism Organization), a Madrid-based agency depending on the UN devoted to promoting tourism and drawing statistics, ranks Spain as the third most visited country in the world, just after France (74 million tourists) and the US (55 million tourists). The list goes on with China, Italy, United Kingdom, Turkey, Germany, Malaysia and Mexico, leading the ranking of the world’s ten major tourism destinations.
Useful as this kind of reports may be as a source of tourism know-how, they only take into account the financial impact of tourism, leaving aside the social, cultural or ecological impact of the fact that, every year, one out of every 8 citizens in the world, that is, 880 million people decide to travel for sightseeing to another country.
