It was a perfect fair tut un man-made. The streams happened to be familiar. Behind the mask we were able to sing well.

You can say that in order to attend a comic church. Komia Church.

Gorgeous, one of the largest churches in Finland. Cemetery nicely tidy already in spring. Worth to see.

The most beautiful church I've seen. A beautiful urn grove, a fine stone pile, gets a nameplate when handing over the graveyard

The Pilgrimage Church of Wies (Wieskirche) is an oval rococo church, designed in the late 1740s by Dominikus Zimmermann. It is located in the foothills of the Alps in the municipality of Steingaden.

The sanctuary of Wies is a pilgrimage church extraordinarily well-preserved in the beautiful setting of an Alpine valley, and is a perfect masterpiece of Rococo art and creative genius, as well as an exceptional testimony to a civilization that has disappeared.

The hamlet of Wies, in 1738, is said to have been the setting of a miracle in which tears were seen on a simple wooden figure of Christ mounted on a column that was no longer venerated by the Premonstratensian monks of the Abbey. A wooden chapel constructed in the fields housed the miraculous statue for some time. However, pilgrims from Germany, Austria, Bohemia, and even Italy became so numerous that the Abbot of the Premonstratensians of Steingaden decided to construct a splendid sanctuary.
