More Than A Feeling

 Is a religious trip right for you?
"Meaningful," "spiritual" and "religious" travel may be little more than modern catch phrases, but travelers have been making pilgrimages throughout history. From time immemorial, religious travel has been about celebrating and solidifying one's faith, by means of fellowship, charity, mindfulness or solitude. For travelers who don't consider themselves religious, the reasons for taking a spiritually grounded trip are more broadly academic. Many independent-minded travelers are fascinated by the prospect of exploring the cultural and historical traditions of an ancient place.
Monasteries,churches and chapels dispersed over the island 
invite you inside and perhaps to light a candle or admire the amazing and imposing old style architecture.

Sightseeing Highlights
  • Island Orientation Tour
