Abstract

The Historic Center of the city of Quito has been considered one of the best preserved in Latin America, which is why it received recognition, from UNESCO, as Cultural Heritage of Humanity. However, this declaration has generated debates about the use and enjoyment of this space as a purely tourist site with a lack of community, identity, and symbolism, which distances the inhabitants themselves from the community. That is why this study aims to make known, from a broad and global perspective, the processes of various historical centers, the regulations that have regulated them and the influence of cultural industries, to finally tell a different story, after the discourses of power, which can lay the foundations to understand the notion of heritage from another perspective an d the opportunity to generate new cultural spaces from the sectors that correspond specifically to the churches of El Robo and El Belén
