Linked-Fiestas: A Knowledge Graph to Promote Cultural Tourism in Spain
Spain is a hot-spot for the European tourism that conforms an important part of its economy. Large cities tend to monopolize this sector unbalancing the outcome of the tourism in Spain. Promoting festivals from less-known regions that belong to the Spanish cultural heritage has been proposed as a solution to balance the economy of this sector. Unfortunately there is a lack of visibility of such festivals that hinders the feasibility of such approach. In this paper we introduce the Linked-Fiestas dataset that aims at providing data of festivals and events from not so well-known regions, so spreading their cultural heritage, bringing visibility to them, and thus, increasing tourists interest. Linked-Fiestas gathers data from well-known datasets, such as DBpedia and Wikidata, and from other datasets outside the Web of Data community.
