Actually from South America, all flights I see (and believe me, I took that route several times, being the last one in January this year) goes by Madrid, Lisbon or Roma, and the cheapest one to / from Brasil, goes to Barcelona.

However, for people attending from outside Europe, London is a lot
cheaper than most places to get to due to being a major hub. To get to
a lot of places in Europe from outside Europe, your cheapest route is
often to go via London. (Paris and Frankfurt are also major hubs, but
the other countries you mention would generally be more expensive to
get to.)
