In this sense, the present study intends to identify the profile of the creative tourist of the Northwestern Region and its motivations, as well as to understand the characteristics of the cultural/creative sector existing in that region of Continental Portugal.

Thus, from July to December 2017, 205 questionnaires were applied to participants in the creative activities of the 5 pilot institutions corresponding to the northern region of the first call of the CREATOUR project - "Development of Creative Tourism Destinations in Small Cities and Rural Areas", in Continental Portugal. For the analysis of the data, descriptive and analytical statistics were used through the Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS version 20).
