Tourism and Cultural Heritage: the Carmo Basilica in Recife - PE

Fernanda Abreu Dos Santos

Cultural tourism is one of the main segments of tourist activity and is currently expanding throughout Brazil. The raw material for this type of tourism is cultural heritage and in the city of Recife - PE, there is a great historical and cultural legacy. One of these material cultural heritage sites is the Basilica of Nossa Senhora do Carmo, located in the Santo Antônio neighbourhood. It bears historical marks of the city's urbanisation, contributes to the process of cultural and religious identity of the people of Recife, as well as being a strong expression of Baroque architecture in the city. It therefore has a significant attraction in terms of the city's tourism offer. Based on these observations, this study aims to investigate aspects of how tourists perceive the Carmo Basilica, taking into account its status as a cultural heritage site.
