However, the study raised some questions about how the society see it. Would Corcovado Hill be only recognized as a wonderful landscape? Is it understood and valorized as a heritage? Do people see something besides this landscape? And if they do, what would it be? To answer all this questions a data collection instrument was found to analyze the society relationship with Corcovado Hill. The structured questionnaire/interview showed as a very good tool to decipher the people's heritage perception. It was thought and organized to show, after its application and analysis, its importance to understand as the society appropriated the geological heritage and permit the best decisions about the heritage use.
