Impact Assessment of Religious Tourism and Accessible Tourism in the Caminhos de Santiago
Tourism is considered one of the most important pillars for the sustainability of the territories, having reached a dynamic and an international dimension that place it in a prominent place among the different economic activities. Religious tourism appears in Portugal as one of the growing segments, both as an economic activity and for the movement of people, being considered strategic. The most visible relationship between tourism and religion lies in the large number of sacred buildings of relevant tourist interest and the intention of tourists to visit. Now, Portugal is a tour of temples, cults and religious festivals and a gateway to other places of worship, such as Santiago de Compostela.
