Turismo Centro Portugal

To Visit and to Stay, is to Help! by Turismo do Centro de Portugal

The large fires that occurred in the Central Region in the summer and autumn of 2017 - that affected more of 60% of the territory - had very serious consequences on the lives of the affected populations as well as on the landscape and cultural heritage of the region. This impact is also visible at the level of economic and business activities including agents operating in the tourism sector. And, it had a negative impact on the feeling of "trustful and secure destiny", that is essential to all tourists, all over the world. However, the Center of Portugal was, in 2017, the second destination region for the search of nationals (share of 22.6%).

  • Exceeding 3 million guests, share of 15.5% of total demand in Portugal
  • + 13.2% and +372 thousand, compared to 2016
  • Higher relative growth, + 26.6% (+294 thousand), registered with foreign guests

  • Foreigners stayed 2.0 nights and national 1.6 nights
  • Growth in the Center (+ 13.2%) above the average of growth in Portugal (+ 8.9%)
