Abstract

The growing tourism competitiveness of cultural destinations has promoted the creation of new tourism products in order to create and consolidate a comprehensive range of leisure that allows the visitor to enjoy enriching and culturally unique experiences. In this sense, the momentum of industrial tourism allows to value the rich industrial and cultural heritage existing in many municipalities in order to meet the new motivations and concerns of tourists. In this regard, the identification and dissemination of industrial heritage and cultural tourism product is presented as essential to generate a major tourist attraction to destinations helping to achieve greater differentiation. The purpose of this research is to analyze the cultural tourism offer that represents the industrial heritage of the province of Seville as a framework for the development of industrial tourism. Consequently, on the one hand, the theoretical framework that defines the conceptualization of industrial tourism will be analyzed, and on the other, will be detailed through a case study of the major initiatives and actions undertaken in the field of industrial tourism in the province of Seville. Given the peculiarities of the object of study, it has proceeded to research methodology selected as the case study method, which will deepen the analysis and understanding of the topic of this work. Also, this will lead to highlight the main distinguishing features of industrial tourism serving as a reference for cultural tourism destination management.
