  • According to tradition, the chapel of our Lady of Trsat was founded to accommodate the Manger of Nazareth, which was brought from the Holy Land and remained here between 1291-1294. When later the Manger was born elsewhere, Pope Urban V decided to give the Croatians in 1367 the picture of our Lady of Trsat to compensate them as valuable loss. From the 15th century to the present day shrine is in the hands of the Franciscans, and has become a major Center for pilgrimage in the West of the country. With the visit of the Pope Juan Pablo II in 2003 was erected a large Memorial Statue, which is also the subject of devotion: the pilgrims tend to rub his hand to ask that a desire is fulfilled.
