Working day

Tourism as a factor of change in the cities, the role we want to give to historical hulls in this growing phenomenon of tourist pressure, examples of the use of the landscape as a tourist product were some of the aspects that were addressed in the Meeting or the relationship between Culture, tourism and economy, as well as its impact on heritage, were some of the aspects addressed at the conference organized by the Consello da Cultura Galega “Mass tourism and heritage, Convergences and diversities of a possible dialogue”, coordinated by the engineer And specialist in cultural heritage, Carlos Nárdiz.

Has any politician considered how many tourists fit in Spain? The increase in tourist flows, which, as some experts explained, is expected to increase further, as well as its impact on particularly sensitive destinations such as heritage cities occupied a good part of the first day of the Meeting, focusing in particular on The case of Compostela. For this reason, Miguel Ángel Troitiño, Professor of Human Geography at the Complutense University of Madrid and coordinator of the study recommended in 2008 to limit visits to the cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, was chosen to open this first day. In his intervention Troitiño stressed that it is necessary to develop actions to avoid an excessive touristification from an early stage of the phenomenon, advocating to establish models of management of cities in which tourism is integrated. The director of Tourism of Galicia, Nava Castro, the councilors of Santiago, Marta Lois and Jorge Duarte, as well as experts such as Manuel Chaín, deputy general director of Protection of Cultural Heritage, José Ramón Castiñeiras, head of Image and Tourism Management Of Galicia, Rafael Sánchez Bargiela, managing director of SA Of Management of the Jacobean Tourism Plan of Galicia, the anthropologist Cristina Sánchez Carretero or representatives of the Regulatory Council DO Ribeira Sacra were some of the speakers who addressed issues such as tourism management in historic centers, the footprint of this phenomenon in the roads of Santiago Or the possibilities of the importance of the support of the local community to guarantee the viability of the Ribeira Sacra as future BIC.
