Routes for the soul

This theme introduces you to a world full of culture and tradition, through the so-called routes of the soul, defined by a series of events, in the sphere of the Universal Exposition 2015, regarding pilgrimages and religious tourism, places of worship and sacred painting. More information...

The Venetian territory is a land made precious by stories of men of deep religiosity and by places dense with spiritual energy, around which small and big sanctuaries have risen. Here it is possible to move through itineraries which give importance to human facts, places of worship and sacred art: fascinating sites enriched at the same time by history, culture and mystery.

Cathedrals, basilicas, sanctuaries, convents, places of retreat and sacred places are testimonies of an artistic path influenced by other cultures which, over the ages, alternated themselves in the territory from the most remote times, and which, being guardians of corpses and relics, have become important pilgrimage and touristic destinations.

Testimonies of the places of worship spread over the Venetian territory demonstrate how much this land represents a unique example of history and spirituality.
