Abstract

The theme of patrimonialization figures as an issue still little analyzed from the perspective of the Geography. The complexity announced by the difficulties that the theme pressuposed is put initially in the understanding of the contradiction between the patrimonialization of the nature, of its untouchability and, at the same time, the developing of the social practice of tourism. In 1972, the Organization for Education, Science and Culture of the United Nations (Unesco) affirmed that it would be considered natural heritage areas that attended to three criteria: their esthetic value, their ecological value and their scientific value. The concept of natural heritage, with the idea of monumentality, was critically analyzed by many authors, as Scifoni, Ribeiro, Zanirato, Paes, Canclini and Morel, among others. In this project of Master, we will analyze how the tendency to conservation and monumentalists practices related to natural heritages, especially world heritages, often result in the appointment of protected areas for tourism practice. Therefore, we start from the assumption that tourism is the only social practice that consumes essentially space at the same time in which, along with other activities and social practices, produces space. As a case study, we chose to analyze the relationship between the development of tourism and the patrimonialization of the nature and the production of the Pantanal regional space and, for that, we will take as a paradigmatic example of a World Natural Heritage, the Pantanal Conservation Complex and its surroundings (Cáceres, Corumbá and Poconé), located between the states of Mato Grosso and Mato Grosso do Sul.
