Route of the Shrines and Basilicas
The “Shrines and Basilicas” route, which is part of the project “Religions and cultures in the Iblei” aims to let people discover the shrines and the basilicas located in several Iblei municipalities; visitors will also have the opportunity to visit worship places revered because of the presence of holy relics, because of the memory of miraculous events or because of their importance from an architectural and religious point of view. The route consists of three sub-routes.
