Based on the analytic results of the thesis we hope to obtain a main conclusion: to expose the urban character of tourist municipalities and how it has changed the very tourism itself; having attracted new residents, generated economic synergies and caused social and symbolic transformations of the studied locations.
The research area is the Penedès Marítim, a multicèntric linear city between metropolitan areas of Barcelona and Tarragona.
The third part zooms in the ethnic community at the micro level in the context of their everyday interactions during the process of participation of tourism activities; adversely, the impacts of tourism development toward the ethnic boundaries and their cultural identity are revealed. This thesis working hypothesis is the existence of a determined territorial attractiveness beyond physical proximity to its nearby metropolitan city core resulting in residential election of touristic destinations.
Such attractiveness can influence creative and other workers to elect these locations to dwell, therefore transforming physical and symbolic appearances of both cities and its inhabitants resulting in new uses to the urban space that build up, symbolically, its very own landscape.
Also, it’s intended to analyze and calibrate the incidence of the housing stock characteristics on this segregation.
It means, if study the presence of small, less quality and cheaper houses, could conditions process a lower income people concentration.
