Palabras clave: ciudades monumentales, comportamiento turístico, seguimiento de turistas, observación directa, itinerarios urbanos

Resumen

Los turistas no tienen un comportamiento aleatorio en las ciudades monumentales, sino que se guían consciente o inconscientemente por unos itinerarios socialmente construidos. Este artículo estu- dia la configuración de estos itinerarios en una ciudad monumental (Girona), a partir de la metodología de la observación directa (siguiendo los turistas y recopilando toda la información relativa a sus visitas) y el cuestionario convencional al final de la visita. Igualmente, establece cuáles son los factores socio- demográficos, ambientales e informativos que explican este comportamiento. La utilización simultánea del método de la observación y el cuestionario se ha mostrado como una técnica útil de análisis del com- portamiento de los turistas.
