The Travelling Pilgrims D.18.08.04

4 Aug

A lot of travel in earlier times was done by pilgrims. Pilgrims traveled all over the Christian world and all over the Muslim period.
Christian pilgrims travelled to places like Santa Santiago de la Compostela in Spain, or sometimes even to Jerusalem.
The Crusaders, of course, travelled to Jerusalem. And in the Muslim world, all Muslims were supposed to, if they could, make the pilgrimage to Mecca once in their life.
So, in all, there was a great deal of activity and travelling in the early religious years.
