Seville, world capital of Tourism.
The travel sector in Spain enjoyed a very successful 2017 surpassing even the USA and becoming the second most visited country in the world.
To this we must add that Seville was chosen in 2018 as the best city to travel according to the ‘Best in Travel’ publication of the prestigious travel guide The Lonely Planet.
If we add to this the celebration of the World Travel & Tourism Council in 2019 we can take as true the words of the mayor of Seville, Juan Espadas, in which he expresses that Seville will become “the world-center city of the taking of decisions for the next few years" in the tourism sector.
The economic impact that the city will receive in all sectors due to these recognitions and events is incalculable in the long term and will undoubtedly mark a before and after for the international image of Seville.
