Cultural tours in the Holy Land

ATS pro Terra Sancta is offering the opportunity to participate in guided tours to a number of the most meaningful sites in the Holy Land, where you will have the opportunity to learn more about the preservation works being carried out in this land, see at first hand the mission that the Franciscan friars have been carrying out for more than eight centuries, and witness many revealing elements of the Christian presence which today remains alive and vital. The five tours are: JERUSALEM: the homes and living stones in the Christian quarter. JERUSALEM: the enhancement of the historical and cultural heritage of the Custody of the Holy Land. BETHLEHEM: projects in support of the local community. JERICHO: mosaic art in the most ancient town in the world. SABASTIYA: the fruits of history and the memory of John the Baptist. Tours are available in English or Italian and are guided by young people working in the various projects.
