Portugal is one of the fastest growing countries in Europe in terms of tourism footfalls and resultant revenues. The overall number of overnight stays increased by 5.1 % within the European Union (EU) in 2017, with Portugal fourth on the growth list. Numbers provided by Eurostat pegs the growth rate for overnight stays in Portugal to 8%. The three above Portugal are Latvia, Slovenia and Croatia, but their total numbers are still miniscule as compared to Portugal which stands at 71.3 million tourists for the year. Spain leads the overall ranking for overnight stays followed by France and Italy. This rise in tourism though is not without the ill-effects often associated with mass tourism such as overcrowding and erosion of natural or cultural heritage. There is now an urgent need for an urban rehabilitation in the country with more skilled tourism jobs being provided.
