Pilgrimage to Holy Land Website


Hi, my name is Olga, and I work with the Israeli ministry of tourism.

As you may know, this year Pope Benedict XVI has made his pilgrimage tour to Holy Land in a mission of peace and reconciliation. His Holiness defined his pilgrimage to the Holy Land as a visit to the birthplace of the Christian faith.
The Pontiff’s pilgrimage had taken him to Jerusalem, Nazareth and Bethlehem in May 2009.
Since the pope's pilgrimage, number of catholics visiting the Holy Land has rapidly increased. Ministry of tourism has set up a website in order to supply more information which may help to a person, who is considering a pilgrimage or interested in Holy Land in general
