According to Spanish newspaper reports, expectations indicate that the number of international tourists visiting the country in 2023 will reach 85 million, mainly Muslim tourists.
Reports indicate that Spain benefits greatly from religious tourism, especially visitors from Muslim-majority countries, including Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, and Saudi Arabia are among the top 25 countries whose residents visited Spain in 2022.
