The Religious Tour

Categories: ,

Description

Travelers have been making spiritual journeys to religious sites for centuries. On this walk we follow the footsteps of pilgrims and spiritual leaders as we explore the great religious changes that took place in Athens, from the establishment of the first Jewish community to the introduction of Christianity by Saint Paul and the Muslim conquest of the Christian lands.

Walk in a nutshell
Visit the historic lands of the three Abrahamic religions (Judaism, Christianity, and Islam) on a fascinating walk while seeing the beauty, art, and architecture of places of worship and religious importance. The walk begins at the Jewish synagogues and the Holocaust Memorial and continues to various Byzantine churches, Ottoman mosques, the site of a vanished Capuchin convent, and ends at the First Evangelical Church of Athens.
