This work presents the research on the Spanish migrants who went abroad and returned back to Grenada, Spain. The information was obtained with the inquiry which was done in Grenada between the years 2003 and 2005. The main category is the returned international emigrants. The analysis deals with demographic and social, economical, political and cultural, dimensions plus religion and family that grow due the migration and return processes. In addition, it deals with those associations that help the people who return, those helping chains for the reintegration into a new habitat which, in spite of being the original place, has different conditions to the ones that existed when they departed.
