During the middle age it was common to go on a pilgrimage.
Many has heard about the big holy pilgrimage paths as Santiago De Compostella and of course Rome and Jerusalem. But there was a lot of other places, also in Denmark, where you could make your pilgrimage to.
Some sources talk about a healing spring and churches with relics which could perform miracles.
In our modern world with all its work pressure and stress it has once again become fashion to go on a pilgrimage to clear your mind.
