Where Do Christians Go on a Pilgrimage?

Many Christians go on pilgrimages to various places they believe relate to where Christ was during his living days. Some of the most popular pilgrimage sites are Jerusalem in Israel and the Vatican City in Rome.

Pilgrims are eager to visit the Holy Land and follow the footsteps of Christ and his apostles. Most of the pilgrimage sites are listed as World Heritage Sites, such as the Old City of Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Rome and Santiago de Compostela in Spain, a symbol of Spanish Christians’ struggle against Muslims. Pilgrims, especially those who take the pilgrimage routes to Santiago de Compostela, travel on foot to reach their destination.
