This book analyses the cultural elements of 21st-century tourism. The structure of the book is based on four main issues, which will help further the readeras understanding of present-day experiential tourism: namely urban and cultural tourism on a global scale; specific studies of new products linked to reappraising the landscape; heritage; and nature. It also examines the influence of branding and of the images projected in order to promote this new type of tourism, using both theoretical and general approaches. Finally, the Camino de Santiago is analysed as a paradigm of the new pilgrimage routes all over the world, with their implications and polysemic nature. Culture, nature, spirituality and urbanism are brought together in a series of studies of contemporary tourist activities. Tourism is, in short, an activity that marks the return of slow movement, of calm and relaxation, of the landscape and of self-rediscovery as a reappraised counterpoint to the frenetic pace of life in modern-day societies.DAsaz RodrAsguez, P.; Ruiz-Labourdette, D.; RodrAsguez Darias, A.J.; Santana, A.; Schmitz, M. aamp; Pineda, F.D.
