In de 4e eeuw was Martinus bisschop van de stad Tours in Frankrijk. Hij maakte diepe indruk door zijn zorg de allerarmsten. Van meet af aan volgden velen hem na. Zij trokken zijn spoor door heel Europa. Ook in Utrecht. Al sinds de 7e eeuw is Martinus van Tours schutspatroon van stad en kerk.

Deze Dom- of Sint Maartenskerk is nu een pleisterplaats op een van de vele pelgrimsroutes vanuit heel Europa naar Tours.

[English translation:]
In the 4th century, Martin was the bishop of the city of Tours in France. 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.

The Centre Culturel Europeén Saint Martin de Tours connects a network of Saint Martin Cities in Europe.
