    Madrid is the seat of the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) and the International Tourism Fair [es] (FITUR).

    In 2018, the city received 10.21 million tourists (53.3% of the international tourists). The biggest share of international tourists come from the United States, followed by Italy, France, the United Kingdom, and Germany. As of 2018, the city has 793 hotels, 85,418 hotel places, and 43,816 hotel rooms. It also had, as of 2018, an estimated 20,217 tourist apartments.

    The most visited museum was the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, with 3.8 million visitors in the sum of its three seats in 2018. Conversely, the Prado Museum had 2.8 million visitors and the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum 906,815 visitors. The most important musical event is the Mad Cool [es] festival, with an attendance of 240,000 during a three-day-long schedule in 2018. Another yearly mass event is the Madrid Pride, with roughly 1.5 million participants in 2018.

    By the late 2010s, gentrification and the spike of tourist apartments in the city center led to an increase in rental prices, pushing residents out of the city center. Most of the tourist apartments in Madrid (50–54%) are located in the Centro District.[104] In the Sol neighborhood (part of the latter district), 3 out of 10 homes are dedicated to tourist apartments, and 2 out of 10 are listed in Airbnb. In April 2019 the plenary of the ayuntamiento passed a plan intending to regulate this practice, seeking to greatly limit the number of tourist apartments. The normative would enforce a requirement for independent access to those apartments in and out of the street. However, after the change of government in June 2019, the new municipal administration plans to revert the regulation.

     

    Valencia (Spanish: [baˈlenθja]), officially València (Valencian: [vaˈlensia]), is the capital of the autonomous community of Valencia and the third-largest city in Spain after Madrid and Barcelona, with around 800,000 inhabitants in the administrative center. Its urban area extends beyond the administrative city limits with a population of around 1.6 million people. Valencia is Spain's third-largest metropolitan area, with a population ranging from 1.7 to 2.5 million depending on how the metropolitan area is defined. The Port of Valencia is the 5th busiest container port in Europe and the busiest container port on the Mediterranean Sea. The city is ranked at Beta-global city in the Globalization and World Cities Research Network.

     

    Barcelona is one of the world's leading tourist, economic, trade fair and cultural centers, and its influence in commerce, education, entertainment, sports, media, fashion, science, and the arts all contribute to its status as one of the major global cities. It is a major cultural and economic center in southwestern Europe, 24th in the world (before Zürich, after Frankfurt) and a financial center. In 2008 it was the fourth most economically powerful city by GDP in the European Union and 35th in the world with GDP amounting to €177 billion. In 2012 Barcelona had a GDP of $170 billion, and it was leading Spain in employment rate at that moment.

    In 2009 the city was ranked Europe's third and one of the world's most successful as a city brand. In the same year, the city was ranked Europe's fourth-best city for business and fastest improving European city, with growth improved by 17% per year, and the city has been experiencing strong and renewed growth for the past three years. Barcelona is also the home of one of the world's most famous clubs, FC Barcelona. Since 2011 Barcelona has been a leading smart city in Europe.  Barcelona is a transport hub, with the Port of Barcelona, being one of Europe's principal seaports and busiest European passenger port, an international airport, Barcelona–El Prat Airport, which handles over 50 million passengers per year, an extensive motorway network, and a high-speed rail line with a link to France and the rest of Europe
