Abstract

To pilgrims coming from the Mediterranean and Europe arrived in Asia Minor, some cities appeared real “wonderlands". The amazement reason was given mainly by Christian basilicas that rose complex and impressive in a context of the Roman ruins. These urban centers correspond to the sites of Christian communities mentioned in the Book of Revelation of Saint John. The pilgrims walked precise routes, touching devotional centers linked to the Apostle John, the Virgin, the first martyrs. But what the pilgrim felt yesterday and what remains today of these spiritual landscapes? Such as contingent valuation strategies? Based on these questions, the paper proposes a hypothesis of exploitation that do recognize, through evocations and tangible references, a dense area of spirituality and devotion that binds the past Pagan worship, Christian mysticism, Islamic religiosit
