The tourist experiences are multisensory and tourism should involve various sensescapes although most of the tourists recognize the importance of the soundscape to their experiences, sound and the soundscape are seldom taken into consideration when choosing a destination (Liu et al., 2017, p. 12). Musical component is currently among less explored fields of religious tourism. Can music be included in its multiple expressions? From a first survey it would seem that although it does not appear to be the main motivation of religious travel, it is in fact a complementary component and completes the experience. This paper contributes to the emerging field of multisensory tourism research by confirming that religious experiences are not only interior but also involves other sensory experiences, thus tourists’ sensory experience should be included as a key factor in any comprehensive tourist satisfaction assessment. The limits are still wide, but next to a series of theoretical questions to explore, the spatial, cultural, sound and emotional aspects appear interesting. Actually, tourism studies have tended to ignore the importance of sonic ways of knowing (Waitt, Duffy, 2010).
