Holy Land Pilgrimage Tour (10days)

Two millennia have passed since the Annunciation to Mary of Nazareth, the event that marks the starts of Christian era. For two thousand years, a constant flow of pilgrims has been going to Holy Land to visit the sacred places where the Gospel was preached. They come to the city of Jerusalem which, St. Paul write, will be the center of the New Order.

In the sixth century, an artist created a mosaic map marking sites mentioned in the Bible. This map, which is in Madaba in Jordan, shows the area of the Holy Land, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria and the Sinai desert and Nile Delta in Egypt. The Near East becomes an enlarged Holy Land, reaching its figurative peak in the depiction of Jerusalem, which is given clear theological significance as the center of the world. The Near East without borders becomes the symbol of a new reality of peace.

A pilgrimage is the best way to discover the Holy Land and understand the Gospels, reading passages at the sacred sites connected with them.

A divine experience to discover a new you

Feel Gods peace wash over you at the Sea of Galilee. Rejoice in Jesus' victory over death at the garden tomb. Welcome to the Holy Land. The place that is considered to be the most important visitor attraction in the whole world.
Jesus chose this land into which to be born and live his life. His mother; his disciples, his first group of followers was all of this land. The people here are the small remaining community of the kinsfolk of Jesus, who have maintained a continuity of life here for the past 2000 years. The joy you carry in your soul from here, is impossible to be expressed in words.
Follow the footsteps of Jesus, seeing where he lived his short but eventful life. Be moved by the places you see and the people you meet. For many it's the journey of a lifetime and one that holds a great spiritual significance. At the Holy Land, you can also learn about the roots of our faith and the evolution of different Christian denominations.
