Abstract

The emergence of new pilgrimage destinations enriches the cultural heritage of a country and sets in motion the economic growth locally, regionally and nationally. One of the best known pilgrimage destinations in Romania is the tomb of Father Arsenie Boca located in Prislop. The information provided by the media shows us that the number of pilgrims who come to Prislop is annually growing. The possible canonization of Father Arsenie Boca and implicitly the official recognition of this pilgrimage destination will have multiple implications in terms of culture and religion, but especially economically. The development of infrastructure to support the development of tourism flows in the area, involves the development of a medium and long term strategy regionally and locally. Tourism development will have a significant economic and image impact on the area.
