The parents of the child, convinced that it was an apparition of the Virgin, built a small chapel of stone above the cave. Pilgrims flocked to the reconstruction of the chapel burned down. The monks Benedictines built the current Abbey in 1647. The tour begins with the Basilica with its flamboyant Gothic architecture. On the left of the Church, long corridors to the Baroque vaults provide access at first to the chapel of seven pains, then further to the cave (by markets), the chapel of pilgrimage.show original

To Einsiedeln, Maria Stein is reportedly the second most important place of pilgrimage of Switzerland. But that is secondary, because even someone who doesn't belong to the faithful, can enjoy this place, the magnificent Baroque church from the 17th with the neoclassical façade from the 19th century, the chapel with the numerous votive tablets as thanks to the Virgin Mary, and the sprawling Monastery complex. It is a place to the stop, a place that helps one to shut down the Turbo. Absolutely recommended.show original
