We already know that Portugal is one of the most sought-after destinations in Europe during the Summer. And, even during the pandemic, it kept being desired by foreigners from many parts of the globe. Good food, accessible prices (compared to the rest of Europe), enviable temperature and beautiful beaches. Tourism in Portugal is definitely doing great!

According to a feature published on SIC Notícias website, the number of tourists in Portugal is already superior to that of 2019. Only in April, 2,4 million tourists have arrived in the country, especially in Lisbon. This means that tourism in Portugal has already fully recovered from the pandemic and may now sigh in relief after two uncertain years. The tendency persists: the greatest number of foreign guests in Portugal are British, followed by Germans and Spaniards.
