España es un país tradicionalmente turístico, destacando Andalucía en este sector. El turismo rural se configura como una tipología turística con fuerte potencial de crecimiento e impacto sobre el desarrollo territorial. No obstante, si este turismo es el que se desarrolla en el espacio rural y en Andalucía conviven tres tipos de zonas rurales, ¿existen tres tipos de turismo rural con incidencia diferente sobre el desarrollo territorial? Para responder a este interrogante, desarrollado en el apartado introductorio, en un segundo epígrafe se analiza la relación entre las zonas rurales andaluzas y su oferta turística, en el tercero se valora la influencia de los tipos de turismo rural andaluz sobre el desarrollo territorial, centrándose, en el cuarto, en zonas rurales que no siguen el patrón identificado y en sus políticas de desarrollo. Finalmente, en base a todo lo anterior, se concluye con una respuesta afirmativa a la cuestión inicial. Traditionally Spain is a touristic country, and Andalusia is a highlighting zone in this sector. Rural tourism is configured as a tourist typology with strong potential for growth and impact on territorial development. However, if rural tourism takes place in rural areas, and Andalusia has three types of it, have these three types of rural tourism a different impact on territorial development? The answer will be developed in an introductory paragraph, a second section which analyzes the relationship between rural tourism and tourism supply in Andalusia, and in the third one, we evaluate the influence of the types of rural tourism on the Andalusian regional development. In the fourth section, we focus on rural areas that do not follow the pattern identified and their development policies. Finally, based on the foregoing, we conclude our study with an affirmative answer to the initial question. Keywords: rural areas; rural tourist; territorial development.
