About this project

There are times along the way when we arrive at a certain place of importance. These places could be deemed
sacred within a particular faith as in the resting place of a saint, or perhaps the site of a natural wonder like an
ancient tree or a spring. It’s not just the location or ritual and religious backgrounds in these places that makes a
place holy; the atmosphere, the sense of history and the journey – the pilgrimage – to and from that place contribute
to the experience.
