Barca’s tourism department says it will continue its operations in the city of Barcelona for two more weeks despite a surge in the number of tourists.
Barcelona Tourism Department chief Pedro Mota said the department had received a lot of messages from tourists about the number and popularity of their flights to and from the city.
He said the tourism ministry would continue its work in Barcelona.
Mota said about 2.5 million tourists visited the city last year.
The department is responsible for all aspects of tourism in Catalonia, including providing services, managing tourism activities and organising cultural events.
The tourism department has been under pressure to cope with a dramatic increase in arrivals and departures of tourists and has raised the capital budget to about 8 billion euros ($10.6 billion).
