Introduction
Tourism Point Corporation was asked to conduct a survey based on La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona and the aim is to analyze the effect of tourism by explaining the relationship between the site, culture local community and the tourists. We are going to subsidivide the topic in three parts: environmental issues, political issues and cultural issues. Our responsability as a consulting firm is the conservation of the site, in our case, La Sagrada Familia and to ensure the sustainability and profitability of this non-purpose built man-made attraction. We are also trying to come up with effective management techniques which suit the given situation. La Sagrada Familia is situated in Barcelona, Spain and it is one of the main attractions of the city. Even though it is still under construction the basilica is opened every day of the year but during different periods of time. Every year million of visitors go to see this incredible piece of art, pray and visit the museum which is located inside the walls of this historical place. This building keeps a part of Antoni Gaudi´s soul, being the most incredible basilica ever created, or started by him. Our corporation has chosen this amazing basilica because it is constantly growing in fame and it is one of the most beautiful masterpieces ever created in terms of church. All the small details which were brought to life by the famous Antonio Gaudi, who unfortunately passed away in the year 1926 before seeing his outstanding work of art being done, are still being perfected by the best architects from our century. The Basilica has been under construction since the year of 1882 and it still is. Some people say that it will be finished in the year 2026 but nothing is certain. Being one of the main attractions, local people have come up with different issues regarding this bulding and the tourist who are coming every year just to see it. The only help we can bring them is by trying to find solutions which would suit both parties.
