Part of the World Regional Geography Book Series book series (WRGBS)

Abstract

This economic activity enabled the development of Spain in the 1960s and 1970s, and its territorial effects have been highly marked. Tourism is today a fundamental economic sector around which the balance of payments and the services sector gravitate. It also affects the dynamics of the food sector, agriculture (mainly wine and oil), and construction and housing. Tourism in Spain is mainly coastal, but inland tourism is starting to develop.
