The digital transformation of the tourism industry is one of the areas with the most business opportunities. It is based on four axes: cloud solutions, mobile, internet of things (IoT) and collaborative economy.
At the supply level, although local and provincial administrations dedicate resources to promote it, the reality is that given the high atomization of the sector and the lack of agents to coordinate and articulate the actions, the level of business that moves this type of tourism is much lower than its potential.

1Alexander von Humboldt was right. At the beginning of the 19th century, the German Sage foresaw the end of the shackles of human understanding through the understanding of the role of commerce and societies in their relationship with nature and science. By the time he published the first volume of Cosmos in 1845, intimate commerce with nature and the study of its mysterious laws were no longer suspected of witchcraft. The knowledge of the external world no longer seemed as dangerous as the cultivation of the arts had been in ancient times, nor the guilty reading of the works of physics by some religious men so persecuted1.
3 By 1845, Humboldt’s cosmogony had already been nourished not only by the study of the meaning of travel since the discovery of America, but also by his experience as a globetrotting scientist. In the context shaped both by this Humboldtian cosmogony and by pragmatism applied to the popularization of science, it is feasible to propose dialogues between Europe and America, such as the particular dialogue between the Iberian Peninsula, the Caribbean and Latin America through trade, science and technology in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, which is the subject of this book. This is the challenge that, after considering the broad subject matter encompassed in these dialogues, was launched for this publication.
The capital of the Costa Verde is the most populated city of the Asturian Principality and combines its seafaring soul with the green landscapes that characterize the region. A walk along the “wall” of the beautiful beach of San Lorenzo to the Plaza Mayor and the marina, realms of cider bars and a great atmosphere, to finish enjoying a few “culines” of cider, is among the essentials of a train trip to Gijon. The Universidad Laboral, a place full of magic that looks like something out of Harry Potter, the Elogio del Horizonte, a work by Eduardo Chillida that rises above the sea, or the house-museum of Jovellanos are not to be missed during your visit.
This town with fairytale landscapes enjoys a privileged location to enjoy the ski slopes of Baqueira and explore the Pyrenean Aran Valley. It is a perfect destination for winter, when the snow gives it even more charm, but summer visitors will have the privilege of being able to walk through its magnificent natural environment. The gastronomy of the area is another reason to stop here, with unforgettable recipes such as the Aranese pot, the fantastic local trout and dishes featuring mushrooms. From Madrid, you can easily reach Vielha by train with the AVE to Lérida.

The remaining theories of pre-Columbian contacts are highly speculative, and lack scientific consensus. There has been speculation about a possible African origin of the Olmec people, a hypothesis of racist origin based on the supposed “negroid” features of some Olmec sculptures, and which was later embraced by certain Afrocentrist currents.  Genetic evidence has shown that Olmec populations are not related to African populations, and the supposed anthropological evidence has been described as based on “superficial judgments and erroneous conclusions. “ There has also been speculation of pre-Columbian contacts by Chinese, Japanese, Indian, Phoenician, Egyptian, Roman, Celtic, Jewish, Arab  navigators or explorers, and African travelers from the Mali empire. None of these hypotheses has a scientific consensus, and they are usually considered as pseudo-archaeology and pseudo-history.
