RESUMEN En este estudio ofrecemos, utilizando un modelo de economía geográfica, un análisis teórico y empírico de los elementos que afectan a la demanda turística en la Comunidad Valenciana. Nuestro análisis se propone combinar ideas desarrolladas en el contexto de la geografía económica con las técnicas de la economía geográfica. De esta manera elaboramos un modelo teórico general para analizar la formación de la demanda turística. Además, del análisis empírico del caso valenciano, se obtiene que la elasticidad de la demanda turística (pernoctaciones en hoteles) con respecto a los servicios ofrecidos es positiva y altamente significativa, mientras que no resulta afectada por el número de restaurantes. ABSTRACT This paper aims at proposing a theoretical and empirical analysis of the factors affecting the touristic demand in Comunidad Valenciana by exploiting the theoretical framework developed in economic geography. Our analysis combines the ideas belonging to the geographical economy with the techniques of the economic geography. In such a way, we propose a theoretical framework in order to study the formation of the touristic demand. The econometric exercise suggests that the elasticity of the touristic demand is positive and very significant with respect to the quality of the touristic services, but it is not affected by the number of restaurants.
