dc.description.abstractThis paper analyzes the historical development of tourism in the Alt Maresme, its current problematic situation, and the strategies that are being considered in the area to regenerate and to give continuity to this economical activity. This region, located on the Northeastern Spanish coast, within the sphere of Barcelona’s Metropolitan area, was in the 60’s and 70’s a good example of Mediterranean mass tourism. This model –with sunny climate, golden beaches, night parties and cheap prices as main incentives to attract tourists, mostly from northwestern Europe- went into decline in the late 80's, due to the success of other international destinations. This study briefly explains the main factors which now affect this activity in the Alt Maresme. It aims to present the main challenges and opportunities of tourism in the area, as well as the threats that may affect the sustainability of tourism in the medium term.
