  • Church with adjacent underground Grotte (chapel in cave). The church is dedicated to Mary. The story is that a family used to reside in the cave, and that Mary appeared to save the little girl from falling of a cliff. There are beautiful paintings inside the church depicting this, as well as other Gothic decorations. Nice surrounding area as well.
  • After Einsiedeln, is the second most important place of pilgrimage in Switzerland. Mariastein Abbey is a Benedictine monastery in the Canton of Solothurn, Switzerland. Over the Chapel of Grace ("Gnadenkapelle") now stands a late Gothic three-aisled basilica. The interior is Baroque and the entrance facade classicist. It is the most important touristic attraction to visit in the area.
