Mariapark

Mariapark (Mary Park), with its unique open-air Way of the Cross, is hidden away in a former factory district. It is the pilgrimage site in Northern Limburg.

 

The Capuchin Fathers laid the foundation stone of Mariapark in 1925. Concrete worker Michiel Geysels built a Lourdes cave and placed a large statue of the Sacred Heart on the street side. On 29 April 1928, the cave and the statue were solemnly consecrated and pilgrimages soon followed. Since then, a wreath of chapels in honour of the Seven Sorrows of Mary, an open-air Way of the Cross and Saint Ludwina Chapel have all been added to the park.
