The Greek Tourism Ministry and the Metropolis of the Dodecanese are launching a cooperation to promote and develop religious tourism, according to a protocol signed on 4 December between Tourism Minister Olga Kefalogianni and His Eminence Metropolitan Cyril of Rhodes of the Metropolises of the Dodecanese of the Ecumenical Patriarchate.

The aim of the protocol is to promote the region’s top religious monuments and establish the Dodecanese as an important religious destination in the country.

When discussing ways to boost religious tourism in the Dodecanese, the publication of a Russian tourist guide on the region’s religious monuments was suggested. Russia is a market with an increased interest in religious tourism.

It is reminded that the tourism ministry has already signed cooperation protocols with the Greek Church and the Church of Crete.

The ministry seeks to extend the country’s tourism season through the development of religious tourism.
