RODRIGUEZ SOCORRO, María del Pino. Reclaiming Cultural Heritage for Tourism Use: The Pottery Town of La Atalaya, Grand Canary Island, Spain. Estud. perspect. tur. [online]. 2005, vol.14, n.4, pp. 349-364. ISSN 1851-1732.
La Atalaya de Santa Brígida on Grand Canary Island , Spain , retains all the personal touches of a cultural heritage which gave rise to pottery as a way of life or livelihood and where the housing is most unusual, being comprised of house-caves and which in times past was one of the favored tourist destinations for visitor to Grand Canary Island. As this thumbnail sketch shows, there is potential here for parlaying this rural community into a tourism resource that would enhance the quality of life of local inhabitants.
