Abstract: Atliktas tyrimas pristato Agluonos ir Vilniaus krašto religinės piligrimystės objektų sąlyčius. Tyrimo rezultatai pagrindė darbo pradžioje išsikeltą hipotezę, kad Agluonoje ir Vilniaus krašte (Trakuose) esantys religinės piligrimystės objektai (Dievo Motinos su Kūdikiu paveikslas, mažųjų kalvarijų Kryžiaus kelias, arba 14-os stočių Kryžiaus kelias, ir viena iš jo stočių – Trijų Kryžių monumentas (kalnas), taip pat šventieji šaltiniai, lankomi per Sekminių ir Švč. Mergelės Marijos ėmimo į dangų šventes) liudija pamaldumo praktikų sąsajas, pristato tarptautinį religinio turizmo dialogą
