Jerusalem and all the biblical locations were a major destination of Christians throughout the centuries of travelling and down to the present date.

The pilgrimage to the Holy Land naturally included other locations mentioned in the Bible, some of which had been identified with certainty while others had remained somewhat legendary.

Maps showing the sites of holy pilgrimages all over the Holy Land, as well as plans of churches and other buildings often illustrate travel accounts.

Locations such as the Holy Sepulchre, Gethsemane, Jordan river, Bethlehem, Nazareth and lake Tiberias, monasteries, tombs, sites of martyrdom, houses and other pilgrim sites in the Holy Land mentioned in the Old and New Testament were described in travel chronicles and depicted in engravings (wood and copper engravings, lithographs) as well as photographs.
