The Custody of the Holy Land launches its new site for the Church of the Holy Sepulchre

Giacomo Pizzi12 March 2012

The site, with enhanced graphics, offers numerous updated materials in four languages ― Italian, English, Spanish, French ― along with a rich selection of images and downloadable photos of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. The contents, organized thematically in a simple and intuitive manner, will accompany visitors in their discovery and understanding of the single most important place in all Christianity.

One of the highlights of the site is the Virtual Photo Tour of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, a fascinating tool which allows everyone to visit the church, entering into the architectural areas and the sacredness itself of the place. Using the player on the Home Page one can follow all the events of Easter 2012 in Jerusalem, thanks to the videos produced by the Franciscan Media Center. In addition, the news box allows one to always keep up to date on the latest news from the Custody and the Holy Land.

The unveiling of the site is the first stage of a larger Project for renovating the Internet sites of the Sanctuaries, a project designed to assist pilgrims coming to the Holy Land, as well as all those who are simply looking for information on the Sanctuaries.

The activities to preserve, study and enhance the Church of the Holy Sepulchre have been made possible by the contributions of numerous supporters and friends of the Holy Land, and are part of the project “THE CENTER OF THE WORLD” which is supported by ATS pro Terra Sancta.

In the “Gadget” section of the new site can be found the Guide and various artistic products produced by ATS pro Terra Sancta on the theme of the Holy Sepulchre, with the aim of supporting the preservation and enhancement activities!
