A pilgrimage is a journey made by believers to a place of religious significance, such as a holy city, shrine or site of a miracle. The travelers are known as pilgrims. Many Catholics make pilgrimages to places of miracles, some performed in the presence of saints, such as the sighting of Mary in Lourdes, Fatima, or the painting of the Black Madonna in Czestochowa, Poland. In Islam, every Muslim is expected to make a pilgrimage to their holy city of Mecca at some point in his life (known as the Hajj). These sites attract millions of pilgrims a year.
