St Paul's footsteps European Cultural Route

"In the footsteps of Saint Paul, the Apostle of the nations" - Cultural Route

European Grouping of Territorial Cooperation (EGTC)


A Cultural Route highlighting the cultural values, heritage and legacy of Saint Paul’s missions to Europe, 
to honour Saint Paul, as the Apostle of the nations, through his epistles and intangible heritage in literature, arts, history, philosophy, theology and Christianity in Europe, 
towards regenerating the European ideals, with sustainable cultural tourism development and promotion along the route in several countries, regions, cities, islands, local communities and tourist destinations

Logo of EGTC

The logo of the EGTC and the Cultural Route is based on the Mosaic roundels on the barrel vaults of the Cappella Arcivescovile of Ravenna, Italy, with portrait busts of twelve apostles and twelve martyrs (six female, six male); created in 494/520 AD (the famous mosaics of Ravenna).
