The Catholic Travel Guide
There are thousands of Catholic shrines and sites of interest throughout the world. We continually add new locations every week. In most countries there are more sites than we show on this website, but these are some of the more popular ones. Many of these are included in organized tours of course but they are almost all accessible to independent travelers as well. Some may only be accessible to independent travelers if they are lesser-known shrines or in locations that are off the main pilgrimage routes. Even then, you may be able to break away from an organized pilgrimage or tour for a few hours to do some exploring on your own, so we encourage you to be creative.
Once you find those places that you wish to visit then we suggest you get a copy of one of the many Catholic guide books that are available that can give you more detail. This will bring added meaning and enjoyment once you actually travel there.
And if you are having trouble finding what you are looking for or would like to suggest additions to this list please contact us and we will do our best to provide with with more information or add another destination to the list. And if you have a review that can help others, please post it on our forum.
