"Holiness: A Glimpse into Sacred Spaces Around the World" Step back in time to the early 12th century as you admire the breathtaking frescoes adorning Bet Maryam, St. Mary's Church in Lalibela.

The Dome of the Rock stands majestically alongside the Western Wall, emanating an aura of sanctity that permeates throughout Jerusalem. Its golden dome symbolizes spiritual enlightenment and beckons believers from all corners of the globe. Travel across continents to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where Christ the Redeemer statue reigns supreme atop Corcovado Mountain. With arms outstretched in eternal embrace, this colossal figure embodies holiness and offers solace to those seeking redemption. Return once more to Jerusalem's sacred grounds - its significance unparalleled. The Dome of the Rock and Western Wall stand side by side as guardians of faith; their presence evokes reverence among pilgrims who come seeking solace amidst centuries-old traditions.

As Colfosco village rests beneath a blanket of winter snow against Sella Massif mountains' backdrop, one can't help but feel humbled by nature's grandeur - a reminder that holiness transcends man-made structures. Journeying towards Europe brings us to Prague's St.
