The Spiritual Route

Sometimes, one wishes to delve more deeply into exploring the town, get away from the everyday hustle and bustle. After all the glittery and sprightly tourist routes, it is time for a quiet walk and the world of religious sites and faith that sustained our ancestors even during the hardest moments in history. 

You can choose a whole day for a fulfilling experience or opt for a shorter version of the route.
