0 24,955

Tourism in Spain collapsed during the corona crisis. The number of foreign tourists seeing the southern European country fell by about 80 percent to 19 million in 2020.

 

It is said to be the lowest number of tourists since 1969.

Spain is one of the hardest-hit European countries with 2.8 million corona infections.

This also has significant consequences for the critical tourist sector, which in 2019 still accounted for 12 percent of the gross domestic product (GDP).

Most tourists came from France (3.8 million) and the United Kingdom (3.1 million) last year, according to the INE statistics agency.

According to official figures, more than 922,000 holidaymakers came from the Netherlands. That was 75 percent less than a year earlier.
