Israel is the birthplace of Christianity, so it is no wonder that our country is such a popular destination among Christian tourists. Our Catholic Holy Land tours are catered specially for Catholic pilgrims and are designed to showcase the most important Christian sights of Israel with an emphasis on Catholic presence on the Holy Land. Christianity in Israel is much more than only Jerusalem and Nazareth. The entire country is saturated with Christian landmarks, and it is virtually impossible to find a place that would not have played an important role in Christian history. Did you know that the tomb of Saint George is located in Lod, an Israeli city right next to Ben-Gurion Airport?
The Catholic Holy Land tours by Genesis Boutique Travel were tailored for tourists and pilgrims of Catholic background and include a variety of Christian landmarks related to Jesus, his followers, and the history of the church. We will Caesarea, where the trial of Saint Paul took place, Nazareth where Jesus lived in his boyhood, Cana where the first miracle took place. Together we will embark on a boat ride on the Sea of Galilee, drive to the Mount of Beatitudes, and visit Yardenit — the site of baptism.
And of course, Jerusalem, the holiest city of Christianity. We will visit the Mount of Olives, the Christian Quarter, the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, and the Garden of Gethsemane. Our Catholic Holy Land tours also include Bethlehem, the city where Jesus was born located just next to Jerusalem on the Palestinian side. Perhaps you would like to include something unique to the itinerary, a rare monastery, or something else? Or maybe combine the itinerary with Jordan and Egypt? Contact us now and we will take care of making the tour of your dreams.
The history of the Catholic Church is forever linked to the history of Israel, and understanding the relationship between Jews and Catholics — sometimes tumultuous, sometimes positive, and sometimes an alliance of convenience — is instrumental to understanding global politics and the status of Israel today. Our Catholic Holy Land tours are an opportunity to learn more about the origins of the Catholic Church and its presence on the Holy Land, and we highly recommend them to all Catholics who want to learn more about the origins of the church.
For thousands of years, Catholic pilgrims have been going to Jerusalem to reconnect with the rich spiritual heritage of Christianity in the Holy Land. Today, like never before, making a pilgrimage is easier than ever, and with the development of the internet, your Holy Land pilgrimage is just one click away.
