Welcome to the second edition of the International Scientific Conference TOURISCAPE2 – Transversal Tourism and Landscape, which this year will take place virtually in Barcelona from 5th to 6th November 2020. The main topic of discussion will be the relationship between tourism and the landscape and, in particular, the problems of the tourist city. The tourist city has two sides, on the one hand the consolidation of the urban aggregate built during the boom of mass tourism as a city and, on the other, the tourist transformation of the post-industrial city. In addition to these cases, we will also discuss the role of landscape in rural tourism. The congress aims to gather researchers of different study fields, focusing on the analysis and/or projects of tourism and landscape. Architects, economists, geographers, landscapers, sociologists, planners, anthropologist and all the academics interested in the spatial dimension of this phenomenon are welcome to join us and to share their experiences. The academic community answered with energy to the call and we received more than 120 proposals from 183 authors affiliated to 50 diferent university in 16 countries. Organized according to different research lines, the proceedings include the final 80 full papers accepted and which have undergone a double-blind review by the international scientific committee. A selection of the best papers concerning tourism cities and urban tourism will be published in the thematic number of the International Journal of Tourism Cities in 2021. While a selection focused on touristic territories and landscapes, have been included in the book “Turismo y paisaje 2: sobre arquitecturas, ciudades, territorios y paisajes del turismo” edited by Tirant Lo Blanch. For copyright reasons, the full text of those last two groups of papers are not included in this proceedings book, but the abstract.
