Making a deep impression by his care for the poorest, from the outset he inspired many to follow his trail throughout Europe, including Utrecht. Since the 7th century, St. Martin of Tours has been Utrecht's patron saint for both the city and the church.
The St. Martin's Cathedral is a waypoint on one of the many pilgrimage routes from anywhere in Europe to Tours.
