The Iberian Peninsula is a tourist magnet that attracts worldwide interest. Year upon year, millions of travellers come here attracted by our beaches, artistic heritage and cuisine. They account for around 10% of the country’s GDP. In view of their major economic importance, Spain and Portugal’s tourist industries require specialist legal advice.
