Abstract

The purpose of this study is to underline the specificities of Lori region and determine practical and theory bases to develop responsible travel, sustainable and decentralized tourism that helps rehabilitation and protection of cultural and historical heritage sites.The first part analyses the geography, the medieval history and the Armenian dynasties that created the golden era of this region located at the north of Armenia. Our study of Armenian heritage is dedicated to the Armenian-chalcedonian monastery of Akhtala, source of curiosities, polemics and controversies, considered Georgian monument and demanded by them. This part of thesis helps us to notice that the most important attraction of Lori is his medieval monuments that carry non Armenian Orthodox Church architectural and confessional influences, because of its geographic location and repeated attachment to Georgia.To understand Armenia’s and Lori’s tourism aspects, the second part trace, as long as possible, the history of tourism development in S.S.R. Armenia and after its independence in 1991. Our research continue to highlight potentials and disadvantages of tourism, analyzing state projects and law texts relative to tourism, exploitation of historical monuments or classification of tourist accommodation establishments.At last, the third part presents possible action plans in Lori, mobilizing local and foreign ONGs in partnership with Armenian and Europeans territorial administrations. This last part aims to show how tourism can be a tool to revalorize heritage monuments, an instrument of economic stabilization, local planning and development and job creation in rural areas
