Pilgrimage was a journey that showed a Christians devotion as they traveled through Europe to Spain, “Way of James” to Santiago de Compostela. They made these trips so often that they placed churches throughout the main routes in Le Puy, Arles, Paris and Vezelay. Completing this journey was said to purify the travelers souls giving them some type of healing benefits. The churches accommodated the travelers by creating churches that had aisles wide enough for travelers to walk in and out to observe relics and walk out without disturbing the Mass that would be taking place in the center.
