Church tours

Yesterday Easter Sunday was one of the holiest days in Christianity. The religious impact upon our landscape and culture has resulted in the creation of many magnificent architectural masterpieces. This means that travelers of any faith or of none can enjoy the majesty of faith based buildings, monuments, memorials and shrines.

A trip to Dublin Ireland would not be complete without a visit to St. Patrick’s Cathedral. One of the must sees on your itinerary in Paris France, the City of Light, is Notre Dame. Mention many other world famous capitol cities and I think of their churches, cathedrals, basilicas and mosques. The focal point of many tours is based around religious icons and sacred holy sites.

You do not to travel internationally to view these blessed venues. Right here in Ironton Ohio we have a wonderful assembly of multi denominational churches representing many different architectural styles. If you have not participated in their Christmas season church walk then this is something you need to add to your must do list.

I have not participated in any church tours in the surrounding river cities so I cannot comment on them but I’m sure they would offer another wonderful experience.
