Pilgrimage to Nazareth and Jerusalem, the land of Jesus.

Visiting the places that recall the life of Jesus is one of the main objectives of the pilgrimage to the Holy Land, but this is complemented by careful attention, good accommodations and meals and a cultural experience in a country of great contrasts like Israel. 

For this reason, traveling to the Holy Land has become one of the most important spiritual experiences, as well as a religious tourism destination par excellence.

Nazareth and Jerusalem, 8 days all inclusive.

Full board, 4 star hotel.

Two groups:
A: March 5 to March 12, 2023
