CARDOSO, Lucília; MATOS PEREIRA, Alexandra  and  ANDRES MARQUES, Isabel. Turismo de raíces: Rutas de la memoria de la diáspora portuguesa Un modelo de evaluación de motivaciones. Estud. perspect. tur. [online]. 2018, vol.27, n.2, pp.213-232. ISSN 1851-1732.

Diasporic short-term return mobilities to connect to the homeland are strong motivational factors for tourist flows of migrants and their descendants who want to (re)search for their roots, (re)experience their ancient homeland and (re)allocate their identity.  Portugal has been traditionally a country of emigration, since the imperial expansion and colonization processes, thus, using the theoretical framework of push-pull factors this paper aims to create a tool to identify what  motivational factors will lead  roots tourists to consume a new tourism product - Memory Routes - aimed at enhancing the way Luso-Brazilian descendants traveling for tourism from Brazil to Portugal can relate to place and experience home and belonging.

Keywords : Portuguese diaspora; Memory; Roots tourism; Travel motivations; Tourist routes.
