Appraisal of the 2016 tourism figures for Girona
31/01/17 | Girona consolidates itself as a year-round tourist attraction with a 12.5% increase in visitors in low-season months (January, February, November and December)
The councillor for Tourism, GlÚria Plana, has presented the tourism results for 2016 in a recent press conference. In her evaluation, the councillor highlighted the reduction in tourism seasonality, one of the objectives of the City Council’s tourism policies, as well as an increase of 17.8% in the number of overnight stays in the city compared with the previous year, particularly in June (with an increase of 53%), July (74%) and August (60%).
Another important result is the rise in the number of surveys recorded at the Tourist Office, which increased by 12.19% over the previous year. The most frequent consultations continue to relate to the historic quarter and its streets, museums, the old Jewish Quarter and the Flower time festival. In addition, this year, the theme of Game of thrones has joined the list of the most popular items tourists seek information about.
