The city of Pirenópolis offers tourism, allowing access to several attractions, such as the Historical Center and its natural landscapes. Therefore, this article presents a proposal for environmental valuation called the Travel Cost Method. The tourist activity in the city stands out as an essential source of income and revenue for the municipality. Commercial establishments linked to tourism in Pirenópolis represented 42.3% of the Ouro e Cristais region until 2018. With this, the methodology used in the work is quantitative-qualitative, where the researchers were based both on doctrine, through bibliographic research, and in self-designed questionnaires to determine the valuation of the studied place. Taking these results as a reference, it is considered that the Survey's evaluation showed significant satisfaction in the sense of the largest number of questions raised, with only the Transit option being the only one that did not reach the maximum score of the reference. Therefore, it is concluded that the appropriation of landscapes can present future risks to the environment because it is not enough to preserve but constantly to be renewed in the matter of public policies, which should be contemplated in conservation actions.
