Anti-tourism protests across Spain continue despite economic growth | BBC News

From BBC News.

The Spanish economy has been growing faster than most of its European neighbours recently – and that’s in great part due to its tourism industry.

Tourism contributes around 13% of GDP growth to the country’s economy thanks to a model based on sand, sea and sun.

This year, nearly 100 million foreign visitors are expected – a new record – and not everyone is happy about the influx of tourists.

Anti-tourism protests have been taking place across many parts of the count§y, including popular destinations Barcelona and Malaga.
