For thousands of years, pilgrims from all over the world have come to the Holy Land to worship and pray—and for tremendous reasons. It’s home to some of the most revered destinations on Earth, including Jerusalem, Nazareth, Mount Carmel, the Sea of Galilee, and Temple Mount, as well as the sacred heart of Christianity, Islam, Judaism, and the Baha’i faith.

But this crossroads of Asia, Africa, and Europe that stretches from the Mediterranean to the River Jordan is also a beguiling place of extreme contrasts. Where the landscapes range from arid deserts to lush valleys and beaches of golden sand. Where some of the world’s most renowned UNESCO World Heritage sites can be found. And where the cultures, cuisine, and daily traditions are as vastly different as the pilgrims themselves.

To delve into the past, present, and future of this magnificent region, come take a spiritual journey with us to the Holy Land.
