Recovery in spain2013 turned out to be quite enterprising for Spain tourism. Spain reclaimed its third position in the global tourism industry with a new record of international footfall last year.

The country’s tourism ministry toiled hard amid the stiff recession to reclaim their spot behind France and United States of America positioning them as top two in terms of foreign tourist arrival.
 
International arrival is one of the pivotal points while judging the progress of a country in the global tourism industry. According to the announcement made by the government, Spain witnessed a rise of 5.6 percent in foreign arrivals in 2013. There were 60.6 million international footfalls in Spain last year. Spain replaced the strong Asian tourism giant China to reclaim the third spot. The most popular destinations were once again Catalonia as well as the Balearic Islands such as Majorca.
 
Spain’s Prime Minister, Mr. Mariano Rajoy was quite overwhelmed while he made the declarations on Tuesday. Spain’s entire economy got the boost from the lucrative tourism industry which accounted almost 11 percent of Spain’s economic output. Spain tourism produced almost 12 percent of the jobs in 2012 with the final calculations for 2013 still pending.
 
Spain was most visited by the British travelers. According to the reports the British accounted for 25 % of the total Sopain’s international tourism. Germany and France were the next two countries from where travelers came to enjoy the Spanish cities in huge numbers. The combined figures suggest 16 percent from these two countries.{jcomments on}
