Vatican City, a city-state surrounded by Rome, Italy, is the headquarters of the Roman Catholic Church. It's home to the Pope and a trove of iconic art and architecture. Its Vatican Museums house ancient Roman sculptures such as the famed “Laocoön and His Sons” as well as Renaissance frescoes in the Raphael Rooms and the Sistine Chapel, famous for Michelangelo’s ceiling.
Expansive, colonnaded St. Peter’s Square is the Vatican’s main public area, where crowds gather for papal appearances and to see the colorfully uniformed Swiss Guard. Inside the massive, marble-and-gold St. Peter’s Basilica is Michelangelo’s marble Pietà sculpture and Bernini’s bronze altar canopy. Visitors can climb to the top of the church’s dome for panoramic views of Rome or descend to the Grottoes to see tombs of saints, popes and monarchs. The Vatican Gardens take up about half of the city’s 44 hectares and are protected by 16th-century walls, but can be toured with advance arrangements.

The World's Most Popular Religious Destinations
Mecca is the holiest city in the religion of Islam. It's located on the Arabian Peninsula 210 miles to the south of Medina. An average of 13 million people visit Mecca every year, nearly all of them Muslims. Devout Muslims are encouraged to make the journey to Mecca (the Hajj) at least once in their lives if they are able, but many make the trip every year. The final month of the Islamic calendar is the busiest. Approximately two million Muslims come to celebrate Hajj. Mecca's holiness derives from the fact that it is the birthplace of the prophet Muhammad and the site of his first revelation about the Quran.
Sadly, non-Muslims are not allowed inside the city of Mecca; failure to observe this rule will lead to fines or deportation. However, non-Muslims are allowed in Medina, another of Islam's holiest cities.
Israeli police estimate that over 11 million people visited Jerusalem's Old City and the Wailing Wall (Western Wall) in 2016. That's quite the increase from the mere three million people who visited in 2003. Followers of the Jewish faith are the most frequent visitors, with some making more than one trip a year. The wall is also a holy site for Muslims, so control of the wall has long been a subject of contention between the two groups.
The Wailing Wall is a place of prayer that has long been sacred to Jewish people. The original wall dates back to the second century BC, when it was part of the Second Temple of Jerusalem. The temple was destroyed by the Romans in 70 AD, and the wall is today all that remains. The extant section of the Wailing Wall connects to a larger wall which encircles the Muslim Dome of the Rock. The Wailing Wall that stands today measures 160 feet long and is 60 feet tall.
Approximately 20 million people visit the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe every year. The Basilica was built on a sacred Aztec site that was once devoted to the temple of Tonantizin Coatlaxopeuh. The history of this epic structure is wrought with violence. Spanish conquerors destroyed the temple upon conquering the city of Tenochtitlan (modern-day Mexico City).
In 1921, a bomb was planted in a flower vase in the basilica, and much of the building's interior was damaged. The Old Basilica was closed for many years following the incident. It still stands, but it's now joined by its neighbor, the New Basilica, which can hold up to 50,000 people for mass.
