AbstractThis chapter focuses on one of the objectives of the Finisterre route research project: to compare the concept of heritage conveyed in regional and municipal heritage policies with that of other local actors. The ethnographic studies carried out in the villages and towns with pilgrim hostels show that there is a gap between the two concepts. This chapter deals with two aspects of the disparity. Firstly, some politicians construct a sophisticated discourse on heritage regarding the Camino de Santiago, which contrasts with the lack of a term to name ‘heritage’ at a local level. The second aspect is related to the concept of heritage itself. Politicians and heritage managers have a limited concept of heritage, and therefore they dedicate their heritage policies and funding to building restoration and maintenance of the route itself. On the other hand, the local residents’ idea of heritage is broader, and includes cultural practices such as festivals and religious celebrations as well as other elements of heritage that are more difficult to catalogue, such as ‘continuing to work the land,’ ‘the rural landscape,’ or ‘our local water supplies.’ In addition, this chapter analyses various levels of conflict around heritage and the Camino.
