Chapel of the Virgin of Lourdes in the forest - Budmerice

Chapel of Our Lady of Lourdes in the Lindav Forest behind the park by the manor house.

The event of the position of the chapel was recorded by Count Pavol Pálfi, whose educator - a spiritual father took care of his sports education and distraction - rode a horse, played football, went hunting, played football, so he was popular with the boys. Although he spent the night at the masquerade ball, he never missed Holy Mass. However, the count's father decided that he was neglecting his upbringing. When he visited the young count after a long time as a field curate, he realized that he was different, serious and religious. He told him how the Virgin of Lourdes appeared to him while walking on the edge of a pine forest near Budmerice. After this event, he traveled to Lourdes, where he procured a beautiful statue of the Virgin Mary of Lourdes and placed it in a place in Budmerice, where it appeared to him. This happened in about 1913. For half a century, the inhabitants of the village honored this statue as a place of pilgrimage, which they decorated with flowers on sunny and festive days. The mentioned priest died at the beginning of the First World War as a saint who left a light-hearted period of his life.
