In the wild woods

hides a gem of devotion:


Evidence of settling in the area dates back to the Neolithic and the site has preserved that feel. Here you are the odd one out. The hill was a proven sacred place in the Iron Age because of the natural wells. In the Middle Ages these attracted still large crowds so the clergy 'modernized' the site to accommodate the visitors. The chapel today is of the 19th century. Devotion still large: grateful people tie colored ribbons to the building.
