Description Source More information
This statistic shows the annual number of international tourists visiting the Community of Madrid from 2001 to 2016. In 2016 around 5.74 million international visitors arrived in the Community of Madrid, over 2.5 million more than in 2001.
The Community of Madrid makes up one of Spain’s 17 autonomous communities. Despite being home to the country’s capital city Madrid, in terms of inbound tourism the community of Madrid ranked as one of the least visited regions of Spain by international travelers in 2016. International tourists tended to visit destinations in Catalonia, the Canary Islands and the Balearic Islands, all popular areas for vacation and holiday travel.

Travel spending in the Community of Madrid however was higher on average than in other regions, including Catalonia, the Canary Islands and Balearic Islands. Total international tourism expenditure in the region valued around 7.6 million euros in 2016, reflecting the recent rise in the number of arrivals. According to other data on tourist arrivals in Spain, the average length of stay for international visitors to the region is around a week.

Supplementary notes
Note that in 2015 a link was made between the data of the Subdirección General de Conocimiento and Estudios Turísticos, the entity in charge of the Statistics of Border Tourist Movements (FRONTUR) until September 30, 2015 and the Instituto Nacional de Estadística (INE Spanish Statistical Office) who became responsible for the same data from October 1st, 2015. The data since 2015 is therefore provided by the INE and earlier data published by the Subdirección General de Conocimiento and Estudios Turísticos.
