Dozens of protesters in Barcelona recently sprayed visitors with water as part of a demonstration against mass tourism. The demonstrators were seen chanting "tourists go home" and squirting them with water pistols, while others carried signs with slogans including "Barcelona is not for sale." Almost 26 million visitors made an overnight stay in the Barcelona region in 2023, spending around $13.8 billion, according to official figures. However, the Assemblea de Barris pel Decreixement Turístic said overwhelming crowds are driving up prices and increasing social inequality. Complaints about mass tourism are also being raised at other popular destinations around the world, which have experienced record visitor numbers as the travel industry roars back from a pandemic-induced downturn.
