AbstractThe present paper objective an analysis of the Catholic Roman dedicated shrine Santa Paulina in Nova Trento (SC) in Brazil based in a Geography of Religion inspired in the special interpretation about Ernst Cassirer's symbolic forms theory. Starting from that articulate theoretical fundamentation of the spacialities engendered by the religion as symbolic form and structuring structure of the reality interpreted Santa Paulina's Catholic Shrine in what refers to the religious man. However, the Catholic shrines are spaces of hierofanic structures where the pilgrims' religious experiences are projected in representations and properly appropriate in the institutional religious discourse. This way, the appropriation of the charisma of Amabile Lúcia Visintainer marks the territoriality of the institution Church and the spatiality of expressions and representations of the pilgrims.
