What is it about?

Corresponding Author: El-Barbary, M.N Email: mnb11@fayoum.edu.eg There is an interrelated association between cultural heritage and 'Sense of Place' (SoP). In turn, SoP is affected by the people's demographic and socioeconomic characteristics. in this paper, we identified several underlying factors that determine the significant correlation between SoP towards different types of cultural heritage sites located in different urban regions. Among these factors are the sites' distance from the person's residence/workplace, economic value, people's awareness about its history, type of activities and targeted gender, feeling of stability, and regions' characteristics.
