Context: The comprehension of patterns regarding the knowledge that grade schoolers of a certain city have, just like the facts which favor or alter this, been of great interest, as they allow one to conduct subsequent comparative analyses with groups affected by particular susceptibilities related to the place where they study in that city. Problem: The objective of the present work focuses on the knowledge of one of those patterns: The local heritage (cultural, natural, services and leisure), that a school-age population from a medium-sized city as Ciudad Real has, resolving the impact that factors such as school location, sociocultural background and age may have on the preference of that heritage. Methodology: To verify this, a sample of 200 people was taken, all of whom resided in Ciudad Real during the school year 2017/2018.Results and Conclusions: From the analysis of the results from this study, we can come to the conclusion that preference over city heritage cannot be predicted based on proximity of the participant’s school, as this is not a decisive element according to the analyzed sample. However, this study is of great interest to local authorities since it allows one to establish strategies that seek a better understanding of all the heritages of the city based on a source of ignorance.
