Spain to welcome foreign tourists back from July

0 47

Spain urged foreign tourists on Monday to return from July as one of Europe’s strictest lockdowns eased, with streets gradually filling again and some pupils returning to school.

“It is perfectly coherent to plan summer vacations to come to Spain in July,” Tourism Minister Reyes Maroto told radio station Onda Cero as Spain geared up to salvage a tourism industry that normally draws 80 million people a year.

The hard-hit capital Madrid was coming back to life on Monday, with people allowed back into its main Retiro park and a few bars and restaurant terraces reopening.
