RouteYou for pilgrim organizations and societies
As a pilgrim organization you want to
- promote and honor the ancient and/or contemporary pilgrim roads and paths.
- inform pilgrims with the routes and stages supplemented by additional route information such as religious buildings, monuments, accommodation, ... (= attractions = POIs or 'Points Of Interest ') along the route(s).
- organise and set up events to put your organization or a certain pilgrim road in the spotlight.
RouteYou is an interesting channel to achieve all those things for free or with a (limited) budget:

Historic pilgrim routes run over a variety of roads and trails and that's why we offer a large number of underlying maps and routing options (can be different for each country ) as
- Google Maps & sat.images
- Topographic Maps
- RouteYou cycling maps
- Open Streetmap
- Manually (so you can always manually outline your path in all cases in the background of your choice, even if that route would run through a field )
You can push your own POIs (and POIs from other RouteYou customers) to your route. Read more about it here.
You can also manage your routes with multiple users if you wish. Or even follow a complete process flow for review and publication.
You can make your route private or public, and add features, themes and group tags so that routes are easy to find by other people.
