Seven Chapels

2600 Vác, Liget
The building complex of the Seven Chapels has been a place of pilgrimage since 1815, where thousands gather to worship the Virgin Mary every year.

The Seven Chapels pilgrimage church can be found on the southern part of Vác, near the Danube bank. According to the written memories, the construction had begun in 1711. According to the legend, a local carpenter placed a statue of Virgin Mary by the spring, after he had recovered from illness. The building complex of the Seven Chapels has been a place of pilgrimage since 1815, where thousands gather to worship the Virgin Mary every year.

The chapel was built by Bishop Mihály Althann, while the seven chapels depicting the seven pains of the Virgin Mary, which also gives the church its name, were only completed in the 20th century. The main attraction is a picture of pietry situated on the main altar. It is an exact replica of the statue of pietry in Máriavölgy. The spring behind the church is said to possess healing powers.

According to the legend, hermit Vácz had been living here. As visitors, we can take pleasure in the seven stations as the huge chestnut trees fall over them.
