The aim of this case study was to discuss if the recent process of turistification has influenced the daily life of the residents of São Bartolomeu, district of Ouro Preto (Mina Gerais), Brazil, and if the growth of tourism has given a new shape to the spatial, territorial and symbolic environment. Therefore, a qualitative study was undertaken by means of data collection using participative observation and interviews interpreted as a tool of the discourse analysis. The main items here presented are the tourist [des] territorialization and the environmental perception. This study has shown that the process of turistification in the district has changed aspects of every day life that can be seen from the perceptions locals have of their environment.

Keywords : Turistification; Territorialization; Desterritorialization; Environment perception.
