Pilgrimage places

Exploring Switzerland's holy sites.

For centuries pilgrimages have been part of Christian life all over the world. A tradition that was once in decline, it is now enjoying a renaissance in Europe. Paul Hugger explores the phenomenon in a recent book: Wallfahrtsorte der Schweiz (Pilgrimage Places of Switzerland; Benteli Verlag). (All images: Barbara Graf Horka, Nicolas Repond)
