Maria Talhof Pilgrimage Site

It is situated to the west of Filipovice, in the deep valley of the Melč brook. A small chapel was probably built there as early as in the 18th century to thank for a miraculous recovery of a small girl. At the end of the 19th century a wooden chapel consecrated to St. Mary was built. It was in ruins after WWII, but in 1996 it was renewed.  A part of it is a roofed wooden altar with a kneeling desk and a small tower.

A wooden cross and a Lourdes cave built of stone can also be seen in the site. Pilgrimages have been regularly held again at Maria Talhof since the mid-1990s.

The place is easy to reach if you follow yellow tourist sign from Melč, from Filipovice you have to descend a sinking path.
