France emerging as a top spiritual tourism hub

Published on : Monday, May 29, 2017

franceAs per a certain study that was conducted by ‘Atout France’, as overwhelming 51 million tourists or pilgrims arrive in French religious tourist locales every year.

 

France has over fifteen sanctuary sites that tourists are free to explore like Mont-Saint-Michel, Nevers and much more. Furthermore, it possess about 50,000 religious edifices, 10,000 of which have been categorized as Protected Historical Monuments.

 

Therefore, naturally, the potential of pilgrimage tourism in France appears to be quite huge.

 

It is in fact a common trend among believers as well as non-believers and even agnostics to arrive at the unique spiritual tourism sites in this country. This is due to their interest in exploring cultural heritage and heading for a spiritual quest rather than merely investing in religious beliefs.

 

For instance, the routes to Santiago de Compostela have started luring in an increased number of visitors.

 

Since the year 2013, these paths have attracted more than 200,000 pilgrims every year. Most of the tourists visiting these sites have confessed that the visits to these places have a very positive impact and enable them to distance themselves from the monotony of their daily existence.
