The Grave Chapel – a victory of nature

Today I want to show you another piece of art and history of my hometown, the so called Grabkapelle  (grave chapel). It’s a small Baroque chapel next to our church and the graveyard. It has a little altar in it showing a Pietá with a Veil of Veronica beneath. The chapel is named after a…
