Travel as a vehicle for spiritual transformation is hardly a new notion – seekers have practiced the act of pilgrimage as long as they've looked to the skies to communion with a higher power. Even in today’s short-attention-span society, setting out to honor the divine or ponder the mysterious is a time-honored tradition, one that refuses to wane with the changing tides of our tech-driven lives. This list of 10 sacred places showcases points of perceived power and peace around the globe. In these places, the physical seems to meld seamlessly with the metaphysical whether due to awe-inspiring natural settings, reported ties to great gods or holy humans, or long-standing consecration as sites of worship and ritual. Use our Travel Search price comparison tool to find the lowest rates on flights, hotels, packages, and more travel deals.
