The public use of cultural resources can constitute an economic alternative, and can also be an incentive to reduce emigration. Nevertheless, it has to develop in a rational and sustainable way trough management plans with the participation of local community. The aim of this article is to apply concepts of cultural heritage interpretation and conservation to a specific case: Los Colorados (La Rioja). These will be used as a base to develop sustainable cultural tourism. One of the main aspects of this plan is to elaborate, for both locals and visitors, a brief view of the past through rock art. In a second stage, we intend to integrate archeological sites with other historical places in order to offer the visitor a wider historical vision.
