Tourism has traditionally been considered as the activity that allows living non-usual experiences in non-usual places. Since globalization of information facilitates the knowledge of remote territories, a tourist offer to closer and, at the same time, unknown places could improve the valorisation of usual environment, encouraging a development process. This paper introduces proximity tourism from a theoretical approach, through questioning key concepts and suggesting research tools in order to finally relate tourism and local development.
