The Edwardians and the Making of a Modern Spanish Obsession

Liverpool University Press

Explores the emergence of mass tourism to Spain during the late Victorian and Edwardian period, and its intersection with British quasi-colonial infrastructure-building in the country. Considers the transformation in tourist guidebooks in the wake of the first Baedeker guide to Spain in 1898, and the emergence of an discourse of ‘anti-tourism’. Explores the proactive role of Spanish regional tourism associations in expanding British imagined geographies of Spain.
