AMBROSIO, Vitor. Sanctuary-Towns: offer and demand: synthesis of edited statistics (2nd part). Encontros Científicos [online]. 2009, n.5, pp.95-112. ISSN 1646-2408.

The definition of a model to the lifecycle of religious tourism destinations is fully indebted, among others, to a thorough literature revision of religious tourism research. Such revision must be conducted in a way such as to systematize scattered and formerly unrelated information and to overcome existing information gaps. Only thus can we attain synergies among existing analyses. Hence, I will present an article advancing a synthesis of all statistics issued until 2006 and characterizing the demand and offer, as far as this segment is concerned. Many of the available data are no longer updated. In such cases, I shall place the emphasis on the approach taken by the respective authors, for what they still contribute to the expertise in this field. Within this background, I wish to draw the attention to the relevance of research already at hand, while, at the same time, I urge researchers and active agents in the field to repeat survey actions and promote result comparison between formerly existing and new data.
