TOURISM, LESS IS MORE?

Last summer, the City Hall of Palma decided to ban the touristic rental in multi-family housing units, a growing phenomenon in many cities, led by the rise of accommodation platforms such as Airbnb.  This measure, pioneer in Spain, tries to relieve the consequences that have already started to be noticed in many places: the abandon of neighborhoods by the locals, raise of rental prices…

On the other side, and closely linked to this problem, we hear concepts such as touristic pressure and we find measures to limit the visits to cities and historic city centers.  The so called “Venice syndrome” forces to search for solutions to massive tourism, a reality that is getting out of control.  New concepts such as “touristification” or “tourism-phobia” has started to be heard in many places.
