Spanish term or phrase: talante providencialista
¿Cómo podría traducir "talante providencialista"? Fue extraída de un texto turístico de Dubai. La oración dice: " Dubai mantiene su talante providencialista, nunca olvida sus orígenes como pueblo de nómadas trashumantes y pescadores".

provincial atmosphere/spirit


Explanation:
I think it's the result ofa former misstranslation, since providencial is related to divine stuff. They probably meant provincial, which matches pretty well teh context.
