The effects of religious tourism on host communities

Maddy Gray, John Winton

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


    While there is very little published literature on the response of host communities to religious tourism, studies of local responses to pilgrimage suggest there is potential for conflict but also for more positive responses. A case study of the local plans to encourage religious tourism to the shrine of the Virgin Mary at Penrhys in the Rhondda throws these issues into sharp focus.
