The city of Surabaya has many old villages which have characteristics in terms of historical, social, economic, cultural and physical aspects. The Surabaya City Government is trying to build urban tourism and community-based tourism, several villages have tried to develop their villages into tourist destinations. Among them, the village in the Contong Alun-Alun Village area is trying to develop a historical tourism area and a cultural heritage known as Tuwo Religious Village. Several studies have shown that the development of community-based tourism is highly dependent on the capacity of the community. The purpose of this study was training in the potential development of the Contong Square area as a tourism area in the Tuwo Religious Village, Surabaya City. Potential mapping uses an asset-based community empowerment approach. This study uses a qualitative descriptive method, with a focus on primary and secondary assets owned by the residents of Alun-Alun Contong Village. Data obtained through observation, interviews, and literature review. The subjects of this study were Contong Alun-Alun Village officials, POKDARWIS, local leaders and the community. The results of the study show various potentials mapped into primary assets: 1) Individual capacity in terms of human resources has a good level of education, but does not yet have sufficient skills and awareness in tourism development. 2) Local associations and organizations show strong potential, especially in community associations, cultural and religious associations. On the second asset. 1) Private and non-profit asset organizations sufficiently support the existence of proven partnerships with higher education institutions in the development of tourist areas. 2) The existing public institutions are sufficient to support tourism development. 3) Physical resources are sufficiently supportive as evidenced by the many unique architectural buildings and there are at least five tourist destinations including Ujung Galuh, Joko Jumput Tomb, Kyai Sido Tomb Mosque, HBNU Building, and Chinatown Area.
