Mecca

Mother of All Settlements

The city of Mecca boasts the statues of the holiest site in Islam, and represents the birthplace of the Prophet Muhammad and therefore the religion itself. Unsurprisingly, tourism in Mecca thrives, with many millions of pilgrims entering the city annually, tripling the urban population during the Hajj. Attractions in Mecca abound, most of them historic places that form part of the Hajj itinerary. Due to the religious importance of the city, entrance is strictly prohibited to non-Muslims. A strong economy generated by tourism makes the city center diverse and cosmopolitan, even featuring one of the tallest buildings in the world.
