Today, as in the Middle Ages, pilgrims leave home and family for a certain period of time in order to seek a spiritual experience. The distancing of themselves from all that is familiar is at the very heart of this experience. They become nomads in mind and in body. By taking to the road however, all pilgrims walk towards themselves. As they venture out, they expose themselves. Their journey covers their own interior geography, a journey where risks and dangers are intimate and secret.
In this first programme, we follow a pilgrimage to Medjugorje (Bosnia), a sanctuary which has become one of the principal destinations for Catholics since the Virgin Mary appeared to some young children there. Then winding through Shikoku, the most southern of the Japanese islands, we accompany a solitary pilgrim over rivers, plains and mountains as he undertakes the most popular of Japanese pilgrimages.

Shrouds, bones, pieces of the "real cross", venerated remains, all these relics represented the riches of the great abbeys during the Middle Ages. Indeed the sacred destinations visited by millions of pilgrims each year are part of a veritable economic structure, whose history is intrinsically linked with the social and political history of the world.
In this second programme we visit the Sanctuary of Ise in Japan, Lourdes in France, Fatima in Portugal, Mecca in Saudi Arabia, Touba in Senegal, Santiago de Compostela in Spain and Sarnatu in India.

Specific gestures and movements, synonymous with pilgrimages, often have universal characteristics: for instance, the slow walking, often bare footed, which accentuates the sense of effort and a certain proximity to nature, but also the purifying gestures such as the washing of feet, faces and hands for the Muslims ablutions in the Ganges or in Temple pools for the Hindus as well as the drinking of holy waters of the temple of Ise for the Shintoists and immersion in the waters of Lourdes for the Christians. Fire is also a universal symbol of purification.
In this third and last programme we discover how sacred places often refer to the same universal symbols which are shared by all religions.
