Abstract

This study presents a global review of tourism history in Catalonia in the last two centuries. The main idea is that in this process, different economic, technological, social, and cultural structural forces had a relevant influence on tourism development. These forces enabled the beginning of tourism activity, influenced the Destination Life Cycle and guided the paradigmatic changes in activity. In the analysis, we present the main advantages and inconvenients that tourism development has reported for Catalan economy and society.
