Public establishments are buildings, premises or enclosures that are accessible to the public, and free access to them cannot be restricted due to any personal or social condition or circumstance. Tourist accommodation establishments are considered public places. These establishments are: hotels, holiday apartments, campsites and rural tourism establishments.
However, free accessibility is not a characteristic of tourist dwellings, since it is the owner who decides to allow third parties to use them, and they are not considered public places.
Another characteristic to take into account is that in public establishments, the proprietor of the activity may not necessarily be the owner, while in tourist dwellings the proprietor of the activity is always the owner, and this distinction gives rise to different rights and obligations for owners and proprietors.
