Religious tourism in Timor-Leste

Along with the local government, the Catholic Church in Timor-Leste has started to develop religious tourism in a bid to assist the country's fragile economy and also promote Catholicism.

Earlier this year, church and government officials launched a program with a group making a pilgrimage to key religious sites in Oecusse District.
