Touristification of Heritage Areas in Latin America



In recent years the touristification of Latin American urban heritage has demanded important material and symbolic transformations, which have required interventions in public spaces and buildings of heritage value, as well as adjustments to public policies. All this to make the cities more attractive for cultural tourism. Several authors point out that this fact has caused the displacement of low-income groups, and the loss of popular uses and traditional practices is less attractive for tourism. This paper constitutes a brief description of this phenomenon and of representative case studies.
