Abstract In recent years, tourism has grown in religious destinations and becomes a key driver for the development in many populations. However, demand studies are still scarce. The aim of this paper is to present the tourist profile in different religious destinations of Spain and identify their characteristics. A fieldwork was conducted in three of the most important religious destinations: Way of St. James, El Rocío pilgrimage and Holy Week in Seville. A comparative analysis between the three profiles showed some similarities between them. Copyright 2017 Asociacion de Geografos Espanoles. All rights reserved.
