Abstract—This paper discusses the relation between archeological tourism and community participation, focusing on Engenho São Jorge dos Erasmos Ruins in the City of Santos, State of São Paulo. The central issue was to identify changes arising from the presence of University of São Paulo through actions of the Culture and Extension Rectory at the Site, in regard to leisure and tourism activities developed at the site, in addition to community participation in the process. Considerations were made on relevant themes, such as tourism, leisure, culture, heritage, archeology and community participation, and the very history of the Engenho (Sugar Mill) and a field survey was developed using interviews with groups of residents, workers, visitors and a manager. Among other things, the authors concluded that the presence of the University of São Paulo contributed to developing leisure and tourism activities at the Engenho and efforts were made to involve the community via local public schools.
