Results of the summer season

Tourism in Girona grew roughly 3% to 8% over the summer season.

The tourism market witnessed slow growth in Catalonia and Girona over the first nine months of the year. However, good weather in June, July and much of August and September resulted in an increase in occupancy. Tentative figures indicate that summer 2015 was an excellent, record-breaking season, with 3% to 8% growth over the previous year. The number of overnight stays in the destination’s range of tourist accommodations has also increased, with Girona registering two million stays in its hotels in July.

Also noteworthy is the solid performance of the French, German, Spanish, Italian and Benelux Union source markets, paired with an increase in visitors from the Americas. On the negative side is the stagnation of the British market and the predicted “burst” of the Russian market.
