More About This Title Spiritual Places


Mankind has spent millennia seeking out and discovering locations that deliver more than just mere scenery or a place to settle and raise a family, and evidence of that search remains in religious shrines, secluded cities, stunning landscapes and architectural wonders that continue to inspire long after those who first visited have left. In Europe, castles, lakes and waterfalls punctuate a fairy-tale landscape, while monasteries and ancient ruins alike tower over modern landscapes, and pilgrimage routes are sought after destinations for the faithful today as they once were centuries ago.

But spirituality is not confined to religious monuments alone. Ecosystems filled with life seen nowhere else on Earth are also areas of fascination that attract visitors annually - beguiling all with earthly wonders, mesmerising wildlife and landscapes that render all who visit as awestruck.

Magnificent temples, sacred rivers, mausoleums, statues and deep, dark rain forests, continue to fascinate, mystify and stimulate mankind today as they did in the past. Our spiritual destinations today embody our endless thirst for knowledge and truth on the most fascinating planet of all - Earth.
