Managing Sacred Sites: Service Provision and Visitor Experience
"The motivations of visitors to the thousands of sacred sites that form part of our global heritage are complex and multidimensional. Some are seeking a life-changing experience; others merely somewhere to while away a rainy afternoon. Some wish to worship; others to marvel or to explore. Managers of sacred sites have to cater for all these needs, while avoiding the temptation to reduce the site to the level of a secular attraction.".
