Geografía fractal de un gran destino turístico
[Fractal Geography of a major tourist destination]
AbstractIbiza, one the world’s major tourist destinations, necessarily welcomes visitors from multiple family environments and socioeconomic condition. Such multi-faceted demand is met by a broad range of accommodation options, largely varying in type and category. Now, by analyzing the effect of this diversity, we may conclude that the hospitality infrastructure adopts a hierarchical spatial structure, characterized by the presence of a few, large scale sub-destinations of unspecialized nature, very similar indeed to the global destination (self-similar fractal), and of many smaller sites that cater to specific demand segments complementary to the previous ones.
