International Tourism Nets €8.5bn for Portugal

In 2012, inbound tourism to Portugal generated €8.5 billion for the country, which is currently ranked 28th in the list of international tourism destinations.
Much has been done to generate more visitor numbers to Portugal, particularly in Europe where €356 billion was spent by foreign tourists last year, equivalent to 43% of the total worldwide spend.
Portugal's appeal as a pleasant, safe and inexpensive holiday destination remains constant and with the slow economy continuing to force hotel and restaurant prices down, there's never been a better time to visit the country.
