Models for tourism and the Camino de Santiago

The Camino de Santiago is an increasingly complex reality that remains active thanks to its capacity to adapt to the times, even as various agents act on it in response to changing needs. The Camino has acquired dimensions that call for research concerning these changes ,through scientific focuses and research methodologies. Diverse facets of the Camino de Santiago are being studied from economics, history, tourism geography, urban geography, and most recently cultural geography. More specifically, this involves the geography of sacred spaces and pilgrimages or the geohumanities, which overlap in the hybridization of cultural geography and lead to fresh epistemic reflections and research on new geographic discourses linked to Camino spaces.
