An undated handout shows a crucifix in the 4th century Orthodox church of Omodhos in western Cyprus, believed to contain shards of the rope which tradition says were used to tie Jesus to the cross. According to the World Tourism Organisation, 300 to 330 million pilgrims visit the world's key religious sites every year. Cyprus is eager to take a big bite out of this growing market and boost the island's main industry. In cooperation with the powerful Church of Cyprus and tourism officials it is launching religious tours for the first time this summer.
