Tourists in Spain break record of numbers 6th year in a row

Spain is the world's second most visited country after France

The number of international visitors to Spain broke yet another record in 2018, the sixth in a row, despite a slower than usual summer, Industry Minister Reyes Maroto said on Wednesday. Preliminary official data showed the number of visitors to Spain rose 0.9 percent in 2018 from a year earlier to 82.6 million tourists. Spain is the world's second most visited country after France and tourism is a pivotal sector for the domestic economy, contributing with nearly 12 pct of the gross domestic product.
